Overview of Pre-planning to improve MMP submittal process: Pitching in to Reduce Piles
Following requests to develop an electronic submittal process for manure management plans, DNR hosted a week-long event in December 2016. DNR asked for input from those who create, submit and process about 7,000 plans annually: animal producers, consultants and technical service providers, county staff and DNR staff. Participants provided their perspectives, including advice on how to build an electronic submittal option for the annual short form and how to pay fees electronically.
Look to this page for continual updates as event participants improve forms and work to provide electronic options for producers and consultants.
For those who prefer using paper forms, DNR will continue to process hard copies. See updated form below. Submit paper MMPs using the current process.
Design Event – Hosted December 2016
Phase 1 – Electronic Short Form – Estimated Availability January 2018
For those who choose to submit the short form electronically, the following services will be available:
