Sometime around Sept. 4, various paints, coatings and solvent waste was discovered dumped around Siren in Burnett County and Frederic in Polk County.
The illegal dumping occurred on private and public lands.
In addition, illegal dumps have been discovered in remote areas around Webster and Danbury in Burnett County.
These illegally disposed of hazardous waste pose a health risk to people, wildlife and groundwater. The waste should have been properly recycled or processed for disposal.
If you have any information related to these illegal dumps, call the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources Tip Line at (800) 847-9367 (TIP-WDNR).
The wardens are looking for any information to assist the investigation of these violations. All calls are confidential.
