DNR Limits Future Expansion of Door County CAFO After Community Outcry

The DNR has finalized a wastewater discharge permit that limits the expansion of Door County’s only CAFO. S & S Jerseyland Dairy had been seeking a permit to more than double in size, from 5,000 to approximately 10,000 cows. The final permit, which limits future expansion to half the number of animals proposed by S & S, represents a significant improvement over an earlier draft version that drew widespread criticism from community members.
