Twists and Turns: State Supreme Court hears two Clean Wisconsin cases

, By Molly Dove

In April, two cases brought by Clean Wisconsin to protect the state’s water resources were heard by the Wisconsin State Supreme Court. Though these cases are centered around permits issued by the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources, the implications of the rulings go far beyond the paperwork.  

In this episode, Clean Wisconsin’s staff attorney Evan Feinauer briefs us on the details of these cases, breaks down our arguments and explains what the future rulings could mean for water protections in the state.
