USACE St. Paul District to Host Meetings on Dredging Plans

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, St. Paul District, is hosting public meetings in Cochrane, Wisconsin, and Wabasha, Minnesota, December 14 and 15 to discuss its planning efforts to manage Mississippi River dredged material between the Chippewa River and Lock and Dam 5, located near Minnesota City, Minnesota.

The meetings will focus on three areas: navigation and channel maintenance, the dredged material management plan process and real estate acquisition.

The Corps is currently revising its plans for Pools 4 and 5 of the Mississippi River.

The plans, once complete, provide the path forward to continue maintaining the 9-foot navigation channel for the next 40 years. Further, the plan will specify the permanent and temporary storage locations for the dredged material.

An environmental assessment is also being prepared as a part of the plan.

The meeting schedules are:

  • December 14, Cochrane, Wisconsin, 100 Michaels St., from 6-7 p.m.
  • December 15, Wabasha, Minnesota, 138 E 2nd St., from 6-7 p.m.
