Employer: Environmental Considerations
When a company location closes, there may be real or perceived environmental contamination that hinders any efforts to clean up and redevelop the property. Through the Wisconsin Plant Recovery Initiative (WPRI), the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (DNR) helps employers and communities expedite the cleanup and revitalization of industrial and commercial facilities that will be closing or have recently closed. When the DNR learns that an industrial or commercial facility will be closing, someone from the WPRI team will contact the employer to further discuss the program and how it may be of assistance. To learn more about this program, visit the DNR website.
