MADISON, Wis. (AP) - The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources wants to add nearly 150 water bodies to its list of impaired waters.
The existing list identifies more than 700 river segments, streams and lakes that don't support fish and aquatic life, recreation or public health. Federal law requires the DNR to update the list every two years.
The agency has been working on the 2012-2014 version since 2011. The newest draft calls for adding 147 water bodies to the list, up from 138 in the last version. DNR officials say they made the changes in response to comments from the public and federal environmental regulators on previous drafts.
The latest proposed list is available on the DNR's website. The agency will take comments from the public through June.
