The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources has released the notice of final determination (NOFD) for Roth Feeder Pig II. The operation’s permit was approved without any additional field monitoring sites or animal unit caps. This decision is greatly disappointing to Crawford Stewardship Project and the public, who’ve submitted over 1200 comments to the DNR noting concerns about the impacts on water quality given the area’s sensitive karst geology.
We at CSP and our partners at Midwest Environmental Advocates are still evaluating the permits and potential next steps. Stay tuned to our website and social media for the latest information and ways that you can take action. And, in the meantime, we welcome you to review the RFPII NOFD and Fact Sheet as well as some recent articles on the matter.
