Officials to Celebrate Completion of Capoli Slough Scheme

The USACE, St. Paul District, and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service will celebrate the completion of the Capoli Slough Islands Habitat Rehabilitation and Enhancement Project during a public ceremony at public boat launch in Ferryville, Wisconsin, on May 13.

The ceremony will include remarks from representatives of the USACE, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Iowa and Wisconsin Departments of Natural Resources, Ferryville Village President, Friends of Pool 9, contractors and Congressman Ron Kind’s office.

The 2,000-acre Capoli Slough Island project is located in lower Pool 9 of the Upper Mississippi River near Lansing, Iowa.

This habitat project was completed as a cooperative effort of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the Wisconsin and Iowa Departments of Natural Resources and the public.

The project was planned, designed and constructed under the authority of the Upper Mississippi River Restoration Program and included building nine new islands and protecting 10 other islands to restore habitat diversity.

The islands were built with material excavated from the main channel and from within Capoli Slough, which created deeper areas for improved fish habitat, especially during winter months.
