DNR Accepting Comments on Floodplain Guidance

In an effort to improve transparency and provide more opportunities for the public to give input on key natural resources decisions, the DNR has begun accepting public comments on proposed guidance. Programs in the agency develop guidance documents that direct staff on how to approach making decisions when there are not specific details in a law or code.

DNR currently is accepting comments on a document that provides step-by-step instructions for the permitting and review process for different types of development in floodplains.

Comments on the proposed guidance must be emailed to Gary Heinrichs in the DNR Dams and Floodplain Section by December 17.
