SUBJECT: WISCONSIN FIELD OFFICE TECHNICAL GUIDE
Purpose. Revisions to Wisconsin Conservation Practice Standards and Specifications.
Explanation of Changes.
Section IV: Conservation Practice Standards and Specifications:
Composting Facility (CPS 317) – The newly issued National Standard revised language as needed to improve readability and clarify intent of criteria. Criteria was revised to include facility siting and design language. Two sections, “Criteria for Mechanically Assisted Composting” and “Power Supply,” were added.
Drainage Water Management (CPS 554) – The newly issued National Standard was revised for clarity. Two purposes were removed: reduce wind erosion or particulate matter (dust) emissions and provide seasonal wildlife habitat.
Significant additions and clarifications were made to most of the “General Criteria,” particularly instructions under “Control Elevation” and “Control Zone.” Similarly, changes were made to sections “Additional Criteria to Reduce Nutrient, Pathogen, and Pesticide Loading” and “Additional Criteria to Improve Productivity, Health, and Vigor of Plants.” The “Considerations,” and “Plans and Specifications” sections were rewritten.
