This week, on behalf of petitioners from across Wisconsin, Midwest Environmental Advocates filed a Petition for Corrective Action with the U.S.
Environmental Protection Agency to bring our state back into compliance with the Clean
Water Act. Wisconsin citizens petitioning the EPA have long-
standing water problems from poor enforcement of the landmark federal law.
The petition asked the EPA “to require our state Department of Natural Resources to issue water pollution permits in compliance with the Clean Water Act,” said MEA attorney Tressie Kamp.
