The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (DNR) today announced the City of Waterloo is an applicant for funding through the Safe Drinking Water Loan Program (SDWLP) and Clean Water Fund Program (CWFP) to address deficiencies in its public drinking water and wastewater systems. The project includes complete street and utility reconstruction, extending from Peschel Street to East Madison Street (Highway 19) in the City of Waterloo.

Activities related to this project are minor actions under Chapter NR 150, Wis. Admin. Code, for which no environmental analysis is required; however, following the SDWLP federal requirement 40 C.F.R. §35.3580, an environmental review must be conducted before funding this project.

The SDWLP has determined that the project will not result in significant adverse environmental effects, and no further environmental review or analysis is needed before proceeding with funding the project.

The public is encouraged to submit comments regarding this decision and the potential environmental impacts of this project. Submit comments by July 26, 2021, to:

Based on the comments received, the SDWLP may prepare an environmental analysis before proceeding with the funding process. The analysis would summarize the DNR’s consideration of the project’s impacts and reasonable alternatives.
