DNR Seeking Public Comment For Environmental Review Of The Village Of Winter Safe Drinking Water Loan Program Project
MADISON, Wis. – The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (DNR) today announced the Village of Winter is an applicant for funding through the Safe Drinking Water Loan Program (SDWLP) to improve its public drinking water system.
The project includes the replacement of valves and hydrants, the rehabilitation of the water tank, plus additional rehabilitation and upgrades at Wells 2 and 3, and the replacement of water meters.
Activities related to this project are minor actions under Chapter NR 150, Wis. Admin. Code, for which no environmental analysis is required; however, following the SDWLP federal requirement 40 C.F.R. §35.3580, an environmental review must be conducted before funding this project.
The SDWLP has determined that the project will not result in significant adverse environmental effects, and no further environmental review or analysis is needed before proceeding with funding the project.
The public is encouraged to submit comments regarding this decision and the potential environmental impacts of this project. Submit comments by Jan. 6, 2022 to:
