Signed by Governor: High Capacity Wells

Signed by Governor: High Capacity Wells

On Thursday, June 1, Gov. Scott Walker signed into law 2017 Wisconsin Act 10 that changes statutes regarding the repair, replacement, reconstruction or transfer of high capacity wells.

The legislation, authored by Sen. Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald (R-Juneau) eliminates the need for the Department of Natural Resources to provide additional approval for an owner of an already approved high capacity well to repair, replace, reconstruct or transfer the well. The bill passed the legislature early this session, after stalling in committee in previous sessions.

On the same day, Walker signed two other bills: Act 8, which designates cheese as the state dairy product, and Act 9, which authorizes school board members to refuse their salaries.
