Fox River Dredging Starts (USA)

Fox River Dredging Kicks Off

The Fox River dredging operations for the 2014 season resumed last week.

Work to remove shipwreck debris behind 1611 State St. in Green Bay, WI, is expected to be underway soon, and capping and covering operations will start in May.

The Fox River Cleanup Project, designed to reduce risk to human health and the environment due to the presence of PCBs in Fox River sediment, is a multi-year cleanup effort that includes dredging, capping and covering.

The project officially started with dredging and processing on April 28, 2009, and this program has a target completion date of 2017.
