DNR Livestock Waste Management Rules Show Progress
Press Release from Midwest Environmental Advocates and three partnering organizations...More ➡
— 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.
Kewaunee County citizens formally request federal action on groundwater contamination problems for people who live near the state's highest concentration of industrial livestock facilities.
The livestock siting law took away local power to regulate CAFOs. Without effective state regulation of industrial farms, the burden of litigating for law enforcement is passed on to citizens.
Citizens of the Town of Lincoln, Kewaunee County are concerned that the Kinnard Farms Inc. plan to manage 70 million gallons of untreated animal waste doesn’t protect groundwater from contamination.
Midwest Environmental Advocates supports an interpretation of the Livestock Facility Siting Law that upholds local control and sufficiently regulates large livestock facilities in Wisconsin.
Midwest Environmental Advocates worked with a Rosendale, WI, citizens group to protect their water, air and land from the impacts of the largest confined dairy operation in the state.
Twenty-eight concerned Crawford County citizens challenged their county's decision to allow a hog confined feeding operation to expand, jeopardizing their local water and air quality.
After years of using legal strategies to limit the practice of spreading manure on frozen ground, a campaign to change the law resulted in a ban that protects surface and groundwater.
The Treml family of Kewaunee County was an ordinary Wisconsin family with three healthy, happy daughters. In 2004, they faced a nightmare that no family should ever face - a life threatenting illness bourne in through their water.
