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.
