— We work with citizens, other environmental groups, neighborhood associations, faith groups and others to educate and build a grassroots coalition of concerned and empowered environmental advocates.
Sixteen petitioners ask the EPA for help to bring Wisconsin into compliance with the Clean Water Act.
Without an environmental impact statement, petitioners say the DNR’s process to approve a permit to fill wetlands and expand rail lines carrying crude oil violated the Wisconsin Environmental Policy Act.

Midwest Environmental Advocates supports an interpretation of the Livestock Facility Siting Law that upholds local control and sufficiently regulates large livestock facilities in Wisconsin.
