7-17-13 supreme court ruling against dnr

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — A ruling by the state's high court has come down against the state Department of Naturalo Resources. The case could set a precedent for how much power the DNR has over setting lake water levels. The case began in 2005 when the DNR rejected a request from the Rock-Koshkonong (KOSH-kuh-nong) Lake District to raise water levels 7.2 inches on Lake Koshkonong. But the Supreme Court said in today's 4-3 decision that the DNR wrongly excluded testimony on the economic impact of lower water levels at the lake.
