DNR Issues Warning Over Sewage Release

04/24/2019- The City of Oconto is getting a stern warning from the Wisconsin DNR about releasing sewage into the river there. The DNR will issue a “notice of noncompliance” to the City for bypassing the water treatment facility and pumping their sewage directly into the Oconto River last week in an attempt to prevent backups into homes and businesses. This is the first time Oconto has had this type of an issue and, according to the DNR, overflows are prohibited. The DNR notice is not punitive, but rather, details instructions to prevent the issue from occurring again.
