The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Chicago District, and the City of Chicago will host two public meetings for the Chicago Area Waterway System (CAWS) Dredged Material Management Plan and Integrated Environmental Impact Statement.

The meetings are set to take place as follows:

  • Wednesday, May 15, 2019

Chicago Public Library Vodak East Side Branch 3710 E. 106th St. Chicago, IL 60617;

5:30 p.m. to 6 p.m. – Doors open & registration for spoken comments;

6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. – Presentation followed by public comments; Q&A to follow (if time allows).

  • Saturday, May 18, 2019

Calumet Park (gymnasium) 9801  S. Avenue G Chicago, IL 60617;

11 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. – Doors open & registration for spoken comments;

11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. – Presentation followed by public comments; Q&A to follow (if time allows).

The purpose of the study is to identify and evaluate alternatives for dredged material management for the CAWS, which is made up of six federal navigation projects: Calumet Harbor and River; the Calumet-Saganashkee (Cal-Sag) Channel; Chicago Harbor; Chicago River; the South Branch of the Chicago River; and the Chicago Sanitary and Ship Canal. USACE analyzed alternatives that could safely confine 20 years’ worth of dredged material generated in the operation and maintenance of the federal navigation channels of the CAWS.

These meetings are being held in order to present the results of the study and provide an opportunity for submitting comments, said USACE.
