The Wisconsin Manure Irrigation Workgroup was convened in Spring 2013 by University of Wisconsin-Extension (UWEX) and University of Wisconsin-Madison (UW-Madison) College of Agricultural and Life Sciences at the request of Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (WDNR) and Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection (WDATCP). The workgroup was asked to review a broad set of issues associated with manure irrigation and to develop guidance and recommendations for state agencies, local governments, and citizens seeking to understand this expanding technology. The workgroup has no formal authority and expects that any public policy action by local or state governments related to workgroup recommendations would involve appropriate public participation and input.
