Wisconsin adopted administrative rules in 2002 (NR 151), with revisions in 2011 that set statewide standards for the prevention and management of polluted runoff in Wisconsin. Nearly all communities, county governments, and farmers are affected by these rules.

This web site provides information and resources to help Wisconsin's local governments and farmers effectively manage polluted runoff from agricultural practices, urban storm water runoff and other nonpoint pollution sources affecting the state's lakes and streams.
