From the Department of Natural Resources
The City of Antigo is an applicant for funding through the safe drinking water loan program (SWDLP) to address deficiencies in their public drinking water system. The project is for replacement of privately-owned lead service lines.
These types of actions normally do not involve significant adverse environmental effects and the Department has made a preliminary determination that no further environmental analysis is needed before proceeding with funding the projects.
The Department is soliciting public comments regarding this decision and potential impacts of these projects.
Written or verbal comments are encouraged. Provide comments to Jim Witthuhn, Bureau of Drinking Water and Groundwater, Department of Natural Resources, Box 7921, Madison, (608) 267-9659 by March 28, 2017.
Based on the comments received, the Department may prepare an environmental analysis before proceeding with the funding process. The analysis would summarize the Department’s consideration of the impacts of the project and reasonable alternatives.
