The DNR Will Take Comments For A Week On The Great Lakes Ballast Water Permit Plan

I went over to the DNR's regional headquarters on King Dr. Monday morning to leave a comment in support of the invasive species management plan the agency wants to establish to help restore the Great Lakes - - but there were no written-only comment forms available for this hearing.

If you registered, remarks were expected, and given the mob scene there, I couldn't take the time to wait.

A DNR employee at the hearing told me that comments for the record could be submitted through the DNR staffer who is the permit drafter.

That would be Paul Luebke, in Madison.

Here is his contact information taken off a DNR information sheet handed out at the hearing, which also says comments can be submitted for the record by the public for a week following the hearing.

1-608-266-0234;; 101 S. Webster St., PO Box 7921, Madison, WI 53707-7921.

So weigh in and support the permit plan; details here.
