DNR project to improve Kewaunee’s public water system seeks public comments
MADISON – The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources is seeking public comment by May 16 on a project designed to improve the public drinking water system in Kewaunee after the city applied for funds for the project through the DNR's Safe Drinking Water Loan Program.
The project includes the replacement of lead service lines throughout the city. Activities related to this project are considered minor actions according to state code, and an environmental review required by federal government under program guidelines determined the project will not result in significant adverse environmental effects.
However, the public is encouraged to submit comments regarding this decision and its potential environmental impacts. Based on the comments, the program may prepare an environmental analysis before proceeding with the funding process. The analysis would summarize the DNR’s consideration of the project's impacts and reasonable alternatives.
To submit comments, mail them to: Department of Natural Resources, c/o Kevin Olson, Community Financial Assistance, CF/2, 101 S. Webster St., P.O. Box 7921, Madison, WI 53707; email [email protected]; or call 608-234-2238.
Contact Christopher Clough at 920-741-7952, 920-562-8900 or [email protected]
