Enforcing Regulations (Robin Pruisner, DNR Nutrient Mgmt. Specialist)
What water quality problems does the DNR face? Robin Pruisner explains.
Enforcement of regulations dealing with how much nutrients people can apply to their lawn or their field would be incredibly difficult. It would be very labor intensive. If it became the job of the [Department of Natural Resources] to do something like that, we don't even have close to enough people to do that. It would be very very hard and that is something that needs to be taken into consideration before regulations are made.
