Group challenges DNR renewal of Domtar permit

A citizens' group working to improve the water quality of the Wisconsin River has challenged a state Department of Natural Resources' renewal of a wastewater permit for a local papermaker.

The Petenwell and Castle Rock Stewards filed a petition against the DNR, saying the agency must consider the impact of phosphorus discharges into the river as well as downstream lakes before renewing permits for Domtar Corp., which operates a paper mill in Nekoosa, according to a PACRS news release.

In 2010, the state Legislature passed regulations to reduce the amount of phosphorus that farms and businesses discharge into local waterways. PACRS consists of Adams and Juneau county land owners, business owners, recreation club members, condo association members, elected officials and citizens.
