Kewaunee County Wisconsin
Wisconsin adopted NR151 administrative rules in 2002, with additional standards in 2011, which set statewide agricultural standards and prohibitions to control polluted runoff from all cropland and livestock operations while protecting Wisconsin’s water resources. 

On July 1, 2018, Wisconsin adopted standards and prohibitions specific to Silurian Dolomite bedrock, defined as “the area in Wisconsin where the bedrock consists of Silurian Dolomite with a depth of bedrock of 20 feet or less,” which includes Kewanee County.  

On September 18, 2018, Kewaunee County locally adopted the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources’ NR151 Agricultural Performance Standards and Prohibitions as Chapter 39. The “Agricultural Performance Standards” Ordinance, which includes the recently adopted Silurian Dolomite rules that address land application of manure on 20 feet or less to bedrock, allows Kewaunee County to enforce the standards and prohibitions. 

LWCD staff inspect livestock facilities and agricultural cropland every four years for Farmland Preservation Participants to identify compliance with Wisconsin’s NR151 Standards and Prohibitions
