Wisconsin Nonmetallic Mining Advisory Committee

The Nonmetallic Mining Advisory Committee plays a role in advising the DNR on administering the statewide nonmetallic mining reclamation program. Meetings must be scheduled at least annually. In general, the NMAC serves as a conduit for input from business groups and the public.

To ensure compliance with uniform, statewide reclamation standards, the law requires the DNR to conduct performance audits for each county and municipal program at least once every 10 years. If an audit reveals a compliance problem, the DNR must consult with the NMAC prior to taking significant action to correct the noncompliance.

The DNR and NMAC also consult in the preparation of a report addressing the balance between revenue (fees collected from mine permittees) and the administrative expenses incurred by county and municipal reclamation programs. This report must be submitted to the Natural Resources Board every five years. The aim is to ensure that a reasonable balance between revenue and expenses is maintained.

Meeting minutes

Current members

The NMAC has nine members appointed by the DNR secretary for three-year terms. The committee’s composition is specified in administrative code. Members represent economic, scientific and cultural viewpoints related to nonmetallic mining and reclamation. They must include a representative from a business that extracts nonmetallic minerals, a representative from a business that uses nonmetallic minerals for road building and other purposes, and a representative from an organization that administers county zoning ordinances.
