Newt Marine Kicks Off Island Restoration Project

Mississippi River Pool 9 Works

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, St. Paul District, is asking all Mississippi River boating and fishing enthusiasts to exercise caution in and around Mississippi River Pool 9 this summer.

The Corps’ contractor, Newt Marine Service, from Dubuque, Iowa, began the second year of a three year island restoration project by Harpers Slough, near Lynxville, Wisconsin, April 5.

The construction activities will be ongoing throughout the summer and include 24-hour operations.

Activities will include using heavy construction equipment and dredging to move material to various locations within the pool for island development.

The project is a part of the Upper Mississippi River Restoration Program, an environmental restoration program devoted to restoring habitat along the Mississippi River.

Established in 1986, the Corps of Engineers has restored more than 45,000 acres, or 62 square miles, of river and floodplain habitat within the St. Paul District.
