Corps Seeks Input on Wabasha Dredging Scheme

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, St. Paul District, is hosting a public meeting May 13 in Wabasha, Minnesota, to update the public about a proposed dredge unloading project and seek comments on the draft Environmental Assessment.

The meeting will be located at the Wabasha City Hall, 900 Hiawatha Dr. East, Wabasha, from 6 – 7 p.m.

Corps staff will provide a brief presentation and will be available to answer questions on the proposed project that is scheduled to begin as early as this fall.

The Corps is planning to unload up to 900,000 cubic yards of dredged material from Crats Island by December 2017. The island is a temporary placement site on the Mississippi River. The plan involves permanently placing the material at an existing site in Wabasha. The process involves hydraulically moving the dredged material from the island to the Wabasha Gravel Pit located on the east side of U.S. Highway 61.

In a separate action, the Corps is hiring a contractor to move nearly 150,000 cubic yards of dredged material from the Wabasha Gravel Pit via truck to a pit owned by Wabasha Sand & Gravel. The pit is located near the intersection of U.S. Highway 61 and Bruegger Valley Road.

The Environmental Assessment is available for public review and comment until June 1.
