Democratic state representatives are calling for an investigation. Channel3000:
Democratic state lawmakers are calling for a legislative investigation, along with hearings open to the public, to explore the state Department of Natural Resources' actions in a case involving an Oconomowoc sewage company.
The 12 legislators are requesting a public hearing after Herr Environmental was potentially poisoning drinking water wells by dumping human waste nearby.
The lawmakers said they want to investigate the DNR's enforcement of the case, citing a Wisconsin State Journal article that reported Scott Gunderson, top political appointee at the DNR, received political contributions from the owner Herr Environmental and his wife in 2006 and 2008.
