Comments Invited on Mississippi River Dredge Cuts

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, St. Paul District, is seeking public comments for two proposed new dredging locations on the Mississippi River within the navigation channel in Pool 10, adjacent to Clayton County, Iowa, and Grant County, Wisconsin.

The proposed action would include the establishment of new dredge cuts near Catfish Slough and Hovie Island, approximately 10 miles downstream of Prairie du Chien, Wisconsin.

The locations would be incorporated into the existing channel maintenance management plan and would allow for routine maintenance dredging in the future instead of emergency dredging or channel closure.

This action is a federal project that requires a review of environmental effects under the National Environmental Policy Act.

A copy of the draft environmental assessment with a finding of no significant impact was coordinated with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and state resource agencies prior to posting of the public notice to ensure compatibility and compliance with other federal and state requirements.

The public review and comment period on the draft environmental assessment ends April 14, 2016.
