State officials say 240 new waterways in Wisconsin are classified as “impaired,” and their pollution will have to be reduced. The D-N-R says more than 180 of the newly listed waters are lakes and sections of rivers that have higher phosphorus levels than the standards which took effect seven years ago. D-N-R water quality director Sharon Gayan says her agency has been looking for waters that need pollution reduction plans — and more than 80-percent of six-thousand waterways that were studied are in good condition. Thirty-five waters were removed from previous impaired listings — and the ones now on the list could get state and/or federal cleanup funds. The new list is on the D-N-R’s website, and the agency is taking public comments on them until December 29th.
