Foxconn now seeking permits
Foxconn Technology Group’s request for an air emissions permit from the Department of Natural Resources details plans for three manufacturing plants in Racine County and provides the first public glimpse at the scope of regulatory requirements the company will face in Wisconsin. State legislation that provided the incentives also exempted the company from a variety of environmental requirements, such as disturbing wetlands and building in stream beds, that other companies have to follow. But the company must get approval for air, wastewater and storm water permits—and approval to tap water from Lake Michigan. Company officials have said it plans to have the flat-panel plant up and operating by January 2019.
