Comment Sought on Kingsbury Bay–Grassy Point Project

The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources is accepting public comments through April 18 on an environmental assessment worksheet (EAW) for the Kingsbury–Grassy Point Habitat Restoration Project.

The Kingsbury Bay–Grassy Point project sites are located at the upper end of the Duluth-Superior Port in the St. Louis River Estuary.

The DNR proposes to mitigate contaminated sediments, legacy wood waste and excessive sedimentation to restore 240 acres of fish and wildlife habitat within a part of the St. Louis River Area of Concern.

According to DNR, detrimental materials will be removed, contained onsite or capped in place. Areas with excess sedimentation will be deepened and the clean materials transported and reused for shoreline improvements. Bay habitats that support productive Lake Superior marshes will be restored.

Construction of the project is expected to be completed by December 2019.
