Fox River Dredging Project Resumes

New season of the Fox River Cleanup Project, designed to reduce risk to human health and the environment due to the presence of PCBs in Fox River sediment, is now officially underway, according to the Fox River Cleanup Group.

“Operations for 2017 got underway on March 20 and are expected to continue until mid-November,” the group said in its latest announcement.

Work to remove industrial contamination from the river started last week in an area south of the Don A. Tilleman Bridge in Green Bay, the Green Bay Press Gazette informs.

Scott Stein, cleanup project spokesman, said: “Every area that’s dredged, we do confirmation sampling to make sure we reach the goal of one part per million, and if not, we do residual dredging.”

Workers expect to remove 545,000 cubic yards of sediment this season, the same as last year, added Stein.

The Fox River project is a multi-year cleanup effort that includes dredging, capping and covering over a 13-mile stretch of the Lower Fox River. As part of the Fox River Cleanup Project, a processing facility was constructed along the river in Green Bay where dewatering, sediment processing and water treatment take place.

The project officially started with dredging and processing on April 28, 2009.
