Response to Letters Received from the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources

We are reviewing DNR’s letters and will discuss them with the agency after we have had a thorough chance to review them. For many years the City of Marinette has provided permits allowing us to discharge our wastewater into the City’s treatment facility. And, in turn DNR has provided permits to allow the City to distribute biosolids that are created from the treatment process.  Other industrial companies also discharge their wastewater into the City’s facility. The biosolids referenced in DNR’s letters therefore come from a variety of sources, and we have no involvement in the City’s production or distribution of them. We intend to continue to address issues cooperatively with DNR and we look forward to future discussions.
