Great Lakes conference expected to draw 1,000 to Detroit

DETROIT (AP) — About 1,000 researchers and others plan to gather in Detroit this week for an international conference focused on the Great Lakes.

The 60th annual International Association for Great Lakes Research conference convenes Monday for five days at downtown`s Cobo Center. More than 800 oral and poster presentations are expected to highlight scientific findings in freshwater health and management.

Michigan State University researcher Joan Rose is scheduled to discuss study areas and investment necessary to protect or restore water quality. Former U.S. Environmental Protection Agency adviser Cameron Davis will talk about political, economic and social effects on the Great Lakes system...

DNR approves sand mining project with large wetlands loss

A timber company`s plans to develop a $65 million sand processing facility between Tomah and Black River Falls that would destroy a large swath of wetlands were approved by the Department of Natural Resources on Friday.

Meteor Timber is proposing to construct a plant and rail transfer site in Monroe County where sand from a nearby mine it owns would be shipped to drillers in Texas and North Dakota, where production is ramping up.

Sand is a key ingredient in fracking and is used under pressure with water to prop open pockets of oil and gas...

Ken Notes: I have suggested that these projects will be difficult to stop, but we should be able to regulate them fare better than we do.

Things to consider:
What is the exit strategy for the site?
Are there fees in place to address impact on infrastructure?
Are neighboring landowners protected from devaluation and impact on land use?
If sensitive lands are directly or indirectly affected, is there an offset?
If foreign prices cause sites to go dormant how are they maintained during this period?

I am sure there are more and I would be happy to work with your local officials to address these issues. Note this is best done before the request for a mine is even made....

Clean Wisconsin welcomes DNR plan to provide drinking water to residents with contaminated wells

MADISON, Wis. – Clean Wisconsin, the state’s oldest and largest environmental organization, welcomed the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resource’s recently announced plan to provide emergency drinking water to rural residents whose wells have been contaminated by livestock manure.

“We’re pleased DNR is taking steps to ensure residents who are impacted by manure-contaminated wells will have immediate access to clean and safe drinking water,” said Water Quality Specialist Scott Laeser, of Clean Wisconsin.

Rural residents who live near fields where livestock manure is spread for fertilizer and disposal sometimes experience so-called “brownwater events” in which manure from nearby farms seeps into private wells.

Republican lawmakers seek to ease phosphorus regulations

A group of 31 Republican state lawmakers are calling for the federal government to help ease regulations of phosphorus discharge into lakes and streams, saying complying with the standards is too expensive for small municipalities.

The standards for phosphorus discharge, which can cause unnatural weed and algae growth in public waterways, were adopted in 2010 by the Wisconsin Natural Resources Board after eight years of scientific review and input from environmental, agricultural and municipal groups....

   ...more

Ken Notes: This is a very difficult issue. Our lakes are becoming floating algae pools because of the phosphorus but communities are a small part of the problem. We need a comprehensive plan working with the farmers, developers and homeowners as well as the communities to address the issues. We should contact the twin cities for example to see what they did to address the issue. We can not just expect to legislate solutions that actually make a difference. That said, the 31 lawmakers are not perusing solutions, they are addressing tax rates and impact on businesses.

States move to roll back environmental rules in Trump’s wake

WASHINGTON — Emboldened by the environmental rollbacks of President Donald Trump, state legislatures are following suit, taking aim at items as varied as solar incentives, chemical spill protections and even anti-pipeline protesters.

The legislation in states from Florida to Wisconsin comes as the Environmental Protection Agency under Trump argues that it can curtail federal regulations, leaving it up to states to decide how to protect against pollution. Shifting the burden to state capitals allows industry lobbyists to divide and conquer their foes, pitting one state’s deregulation against another’s.

Trump`s war on the Great Lakes is puzzling | Column

President Donald Trump won the 2016 election in Wisconsin and several Great Lakes states, but his Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt is assaulting Great Lakes protection and restoration. Slashing funding for the sensible Great Lakes Restoration Initiative from $300 million annually to $0. Rolling back Clean Water Act standards that protect safe, clean drinking water. Potentially closing the U.S. EPA’s Region 5 office in Chicago, which includes the Great Lakes National Program Office, and transferring its staff to Kansas.

What are they thinking? This is a headscratcher, criticized by both Republican and Democratic leaders. Pruitt says he wants to get “back to basics.” What could be more basic than protecting the Great Lakes?...

With livestock-contamination of drinking water a growing concern in Wisconsin, the Department of Natural Resources has quietly started efforts to provide temporary water supplies to people with tainted wells.

The DNR posted an update on its website in April that said it would provide temporary emergency drinking water when tests show that a water supply is contaminated and is likely due to groundwater contaminated by manure, a person on the property contracts a water-borne illness or there is a sudden change in color or odor of well water...

Nash column: Under GOP leadership, say goodbye to clean air and water

Since Gov. Scott Walker was elected and Republican lawmakers gained the majority in the Legislature, the quality of Wisconsin’s air, land and water has suffered and is threatened by yet more policies favoring polluters. The same is true under the current Republican president and the GOP majority in Congress.

Throughout 2015, according to records collected by the Environmental Protection Agency, Wisconsin ranked 11 out of all the states at most risk from more than 100 water contaminants including harmful levels of nitrates, bacteria, toxic chemicals and lead. In 2014, 50 percent of the tested private wells in the town of Lincoln, in Kewaunee County, were found to be contaminated by high amounts of nitrates, E. coli bacteria and other dangerous contaminants that are linked to fertilizers, manure, and septic system wastes....

Study measures air pollution increase attributable to air conditioning

When summer temperatures rise and people turn to their air conditioners to stay cool, something else also increases: air pollution.

A new study published Wednesday (May 3, 2017) in the journal Environmental Science & Technology shows that the electricity production associated with air conditioning causes emissions of sulfur dioxide, nitrogen oxides and carbon dioxide to increase by hundreds to thousands of metric tons, or 3 to 4 percent per degree Celsius (or 1.8 degrees Fahrenheit)....

Wisconsin Senate Passes Koch-Backed REINS Bill That Would Benefit Koch, Other Polluters

Environmental review due for Enbridge pipeline replacement

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — The Minnesota Department of Commerce kicks off a public comment period Monday when it releases a draft environmental review for Enbridge Energy`s proposed replacement for its aging Line 3 crude oil pipeline across northern Minnesota.

Enbridge plans to spend $2.6 billion on the 337-mile Minnesota section. Enbridge wants to follow the existing Line 3 corridor part of the way but take a more southerly path for the rest.

Chris Hardie: DNR prescribed burns restore the land

Let’s take a trip back in time — more than 300 years ago — to before the days of European settlement in Wisconsin. Native Americans lived here, but the state had virtually no agriculture. It was covered in virgin prairie and great forests. It was a true wilderness.

But about every one to three years fires swept through the state’s great grasslands — sometimes set by Native Americans and sometimes caused by lightning strikes. And going back eons, even the hardwood forests burned every 500 to 1,000 years....

GOP puts business, not science, in control of state’s water
“It’s bad,” said Elizabeth Wheeler, senior attorney for Clean Wisconsin, which works to protect the state’s air and water. “It’s a huge step backward for groundwater protection compared to what we have now.”

Wisconsin’s expert environmental officials lack broad authority to regulate high-capacity wells, Attorney General Brad Schimel said this week in a formal opinion.

Schimel said, in effect, that business interests must trump any negative impacts on the state’s water supply in making decisions about high-capacity wells...

Other view: DNR derelict in not alerting La Crosse County about tainted wells

The following editorial appeared in the May 14 La Crosse Tribune:

“Clean air, clean water and healthy landscapes.”

That’s what Wisconsin should stand for.

In fact, those are the first words on the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources website — as we’ve pointed out in previous editorials expressing concern about the dangers of high-capacity wells and audits showing that the DNR has failed more than 90 percent of the time to enforce water-pollution limits.

Sadly, we need to keep expressing concerns about enforcement of clean water regulations, because the La Crosse Tribune’s report last week on elevated nitrate levels near a huge hog operation in La Crosse County was very troubling — and the DNR’s response to the potential groundwater problem is embarrassing.

Babcock Genetics has a permit to raise more than 4,000 hogs in the town of Holland near Holmen....

Between a Lake and a Hard Place
Decade-old Arboretum dispute shows conflicting interests in environment

An out-of-town real estate developer arrives in a beautiful, fragile ecosystem ready to tear up land and build mansions. The neighbors, frightened not only for the good of their neighborhood but for the principle of protecting their homeland, band together to fight off the developer.

At first glance, the 2006 development dispute in the town of Madison’s unique Arboretum Neighborhood fits this storyline, potential fodder for Pixar’s next feature. But any movie about the issue would quickly be bogged down in bureaucratic see-sawing and caught in heated rhetoric from both sides, who each saw themselves as the best choice for the good of the environment.

The conflict started when Darren Kittleson, a real estate developer from the city of Madison, bought land in the Arboretum Neighborhood, just south of the University of Wisconsin campus, intending to demolish existing properties and build two new homes....
