Wisconsin Plant Recovery Initiative (WPRI)
Expedite Closed Industrial Facility Cleanup and Revitalization
WPRI is a DNR effort to help businesses and communities expedite the cleanup and reuse of industrial and/or
commercial facilities that have or are planning to shut their doors. Besides the loss of jobs, tax revenue and local
business, a plant closing may leave environmental contamination. DNR’s cleanup and redevelopment tools are
designed to help return these properties to productive use and encourage economic revitalization. Find more
details in DNR publication Wisconsin DNR Plant Recovery Initiative Fact Sheet (RR-862).
