Registration Of Water Withdrawals In Wisconsin Due June 30

The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (WDNR) has announced that industrial water users that exceed specific thresholds will need to register with the State by June 30, 2011. All industries that withdraw 100,000 gallons or more of water per day, or 70 gallons or more per minute, from any water source, are required to register with the WDNR. The registration requirement applies to both existing and new withdrawals from either surface or groundwater sources. This requirement also applies to industries that only make temporary withdrawals. Each property that meets the registration threshold must be registered separately

Registered withdrawals will need to measure or estimate the volume of water withdrawn every month and report that information to the WDNR each year by March 1. WDNR intends to send reminders of the annual reporting requirements and the process for submitting the information.
