Meeting on Dredged Material Disposal Takes Place in Waterford

The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources will hold a public meeting to discuss the proposal by the Waterford Waterway Management District to dispose of dredged materials from the Waterford Dam Impoundment and Tichigan Lake.

The meeting is set for Thursday, February 23, beginning at 5 p.m. at the Waterford Town Hall in Waterford.

“The meeting will begin with a presentation outlining the proposal. Staff with the DNR and a consultant to the Waterford Waterway Management District will be on hand to answer questions and take comments,” WDNR said in its announcement.

Under the proposal, the dredged material will be placed at the following three locations:

  • The Super Mix sand and gravel quarry, located north of Highway 20 (High Drive) and southwest of Highway 83;
  • A portion of the Tichigan State Wildlife Area west of Marsh Road;
  • A portion of the Tichigan State Wildlife Area east of Marsh Road.

The receiving properties are located in the town of Waterford.

Background

The Waterford Waterway Management District is proposing to dredge approximately 500,000 cubic yards of sediments from the Waterford Dam Impoundment and Tichigan Lake.

The reasons for the dredging include:

  • re-establishing the Fox River navigational channel through the waterway;
  • establish dredged channels for boating;
  • reestablish access for properties to Tichigan Lake;
  • reduce nutrient loads in the waterway; and improve fish habitat.

The dredged materials will be transported to the proposed disposal properties by pipe, dewatered and the water piped back to the Fox River for discharge.
