USACE Invites Comments on Bubbly Creek Plan

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), Chicago District, has released for public comment the “Bubbly Creek, South Branch of the Chicago River, Illinois, Draft Integrated Feasibility Report and Environmental Assessment.”

The draft report provides a recommendation by the District Engineer for an ecosystem restoration project for Bubbly Creek. The study was completed in partnership with the City of Chicago, Department of Planning and Development.

The restoration measures outlined in this report will not only benefit the ecosystem in the area, they will also allow increased uses of the waterway for residents and visitors,” said Col. Christopher T. Drew, Commander of the Chicago District. “I encourage the public to review and comment on the report.”

A public meeting to provide additional information about the report and to seek input from the community is planned April 30, 2015 from 6:00 to 7:30 p.m. at the Bridgeport Public Library, 3400 S. Halsted Street, Chicago, Ill.
