Welcome to the Wauleco website.

The fact that you are here probably means you are looking for additional information on the environmental cleanup efforts at our property at 125 Rosecrans in Wausau. We understand and want to be a reliable, informative resource for you.

Now, our goal here is not to provide a slanted perspective, or to dispute news articles you may have read. We simply hope to offer clarity through documented facts.

We recognize the immeasurable value our natural resources—our soil, our waters, our trees and wildlife—bring to this community. The waters and woods of central Wisconsin existed long before we did, and collectively, we need to act as stewards and caretakers. That’s why, dating back to 1984, we’ve been working diligently on the cleanup of the property. We’ve worked with the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (WDNR) every step of the way, as well as the City of Wausau, investing tens of millions of dollars into the project. Deploying effective cleanup technologies, much of the contaminants have been recovered and removed from the property but more work remains to be done. Our cleanup efforts will continue until we can return the site to a place of purpose and benefit to the community.

We thank you for your interest, and your sincere dedication to the well-being of the Wausau community. We’re right there with you.
