Wisconsin dairy CAFO group appeals pollution permit case

SHARE NOW

The Wisconsin Dairy Alliance has filed an appeal in its case against the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources concerning pollutant discharge elimination system permits.

The original lawsuit on behalf of Wisconsin Dairy Alliance and Venture Dairy Cooperative claimed the DNR lacked authority to force farms to have permits under the state’s water quality laws.  Calumet County Judge Carey Reed rejected that argument at the end of January.
