Watershed Permit Issued for Menomonee River
Milwaukee Riverkeeper is a partner of the Southeastern Wisconsin Watershed Trust, or Sweet Water Trust. One of Sweet Water’s major initiatives over the last few years was to work with the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources, the EPA, MMSD and others to craft Wisconsin’s first watershed-based stormwater permit. We are pleased to announce that 11 municipalities (including Milwaukee County) within the Menomonee River Watershed have agreed to participate in this watershed-based stormwater permit, which went into effect November 29, 2012.
Thanks to the Joyce Foundation for funding Sweet Water’s work!
