Fox River Dredging Resumes

The Fox River Cleanup Project – Season 2015, designed to reduce risk to human health and the environment due to the presence of PCBs in Fox River sediment, started yesterday, announced the Fox River Cleanup Group.

This cleanup program is a multi-year cleanup effort that includes dredging, capping and covering over a 13-mile stretch of the Lower Fox River. The project officially started with dredging and processing on April 28, 2009.

We are starting this year at the processing facility, which is right along the Green Bay, Allouez area. And we will continue to move downstream and probably get into the parts of downtown Green Bay area,” said Scott Stein, Fox River Cleanup Project spokesperson.

This season, the work is getting closer to the area downtown and the target date for finishing the project to the mouth of the Fox River is 2017.

As part of the Fox River Cleanup Project, a processing facility was constructed along the river in Green Bay where dewatering, sediment processing and water treatment take place.

A staging facility is located between Little Rapids and De Pere to support the pipeline to the spreader barge and manage capping and covering materials. Contaminated sediment will be handled only at the Green Bay Processing Facility.
