Remediation & Redevelopment External Advisory Group

The Remediation and Redevelopment External Advisory Group (RR EAG) was formed to address a broad range of issues, encompassing both technical and policy topics related to encouraging the investigation, cleanup and redevelopment of contaminated sites in Wisconsin.

The RR EAG identifies issues and topics of interest that may be addressed by ad hoc subgroups. Subgroup members are expected to research and develop recommendations on the selected topics for presentation to the full group.

The RR EAG meets quarterly, with additional subgroup meetings scheduled as needed. Meetings are open to the public.

Agenda

NR 700 Technical Focus Subgroup

NR 700 Technical Focus Subgroup

The NR 700 Technical Focus Subgroup (formerly the NR 700 Technical Focus Group) meets on an as-needed basis to discuss technical issues and the application of chs. NR 700-799, Wis. Admin. Code. and the realities encountered while working on the investigation and cleanup of soil and groundwater contamination. Typical agenda topics include updates on proposed rules, changes in guidance and procedures and questions and comments from environmental consultants.

The NR 700 Technical Focus Group originated in 1995, when the Wisconsin Natural Resources Board directed the RR Program to establish a forum for review of the newly enacted NR 700 code series, titled "Investigation and Remediation of Environmental Cleanup." The group was incorporated into the RR EAG as a subgroup in 2022.

Contaminated Sediments Subgroup

Contaminated Sediments Subgroup

The purpose of the Contaminated Sediments Subgroup (formerly the Contaminated Sediments External Advisory Group) is to provide constructive feedback to the DNR on topics associated with the management of contaminated sediments from dredging projects, environmental cleanups, redevelopment and other construction projects.

The DNR established the Contaminated Sediments External Advisory Group in 2015 to develop a unified approach to address issues associated with the investigation, management and remediation of contaminated sediments in waters of the state. The group was incorporated into the RR EAG as a subgroup in 2022.
