Clean Wisconsin, Inc. v. DNR

Court: Wisconsin Supreme Court
Case No.: 2016AP1688
Status: Case Closed
WMC Involvement: Amicus
In this case, WMC filed an amicus brief in the Wisconsin Supreme Court. WMC argued that the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (DNR) had unlawfully imposed certain conditions on a farm’s Wisconsin Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (WPDES) permit. The supreme court ruled against the farm, holding that “the DNR had the explicit authority to impose both the animal unit maximum and off-site groundwater monitoring conditions.”
