On or about January 7, 2021, the Petitioner filed a petition for a contested case hearing pursuant to Wis. Stat. § 227.42, requesting a hearing on the denial of the four permit renewal applications. On Feb. 3, 2021, the DNR reviewed the petition and granted the petition as to some of the issues. On March 4, 2022, the DNR then forwarded the file to the Division of Hearings and Appeals, who assigned the undersigned administrative law judge.

The hearing in this matter was previously scheduled to begin on Aug.15, 2022. At the request of the Petitioner, the matter was rescheduled. The parties have conferred and agreed to a new date for a hearing.

Members of the public desiring to participate in this hearing pursuant to Wis. Admin. Code § NR 2.08 will be allowed the opportunity to do so after the parties have presented their evidence and any oral closing argument.

The hearing is a Class 1 contested case pursuant to Wis. Stat. § 227.01(3)(a), and the fair play provisions of Wis. Stat. ch. 227 will apply. The procedures relating to contested cases set forth in Wis. Admin. Code Ch. NR 2 will be followed. Said procedures will closely resemble those that are normally followed at a trial in State circuit court. All parties are advised that they have the right to seek the aid and assistance of legal counsel and to be represented by legal counsel at the contested case hearing.
