A public hearing is scheduled Thursday in connection with reissuance of a Wisconsin Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (WPDES) permit for a southern Door County concentrated animal feeding operation (CAFO).

The Department of Natural Resources public informational hearing is scheduled for 9 a.m. Thursday, March 2, at the Forestville Town Hall, 7705 County Road H, Maplewood.

S&S Ag Enterprises LLC, 7900 Old Elm Road in the town of Forestville, has petitioned for a permit that would allow the farm to expand from its current 6,820 animal units to 10,230 by the end of October 2021.

The permit notice indicates that the “receiving water” of any discharge would be the Ahnapee River Watershed.

Interested people who can’t attend Thursday may also send public comment to the DNR permit drafter, Bradley Holtz, at bradley.holtz@wisconsin.gov  or USPS mail:
