The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ St. Paul District has released a draft Environmental Assessment (EA) for its proposed dredged material management plan in Pool 5, near Kellogg, Minnesota.

The draft plan outlines the transportation methods and necessary land requirements to permanently place dredged material removed from the Mississippi River in Pool 5 for the next 40 years.

According to USACE, all of the land would be acquired through willing sellers.

This plan would ensure the 9-foot navigation channel remains open and able to transport the region’s grains to global markets. Pool 5 is an 15-mile long stretch of the river from Lock and Dam 4, in Alma, Wisconsin, to Lock and Dam 5 in Minnesota City, Minnesota, said USACE.

USACE officials will also host a public meeting to discuss the draft plan and receive public comments.

The meeting is set to take place at the St. Agnes Church, 125 W Belvidere Ave., in Kellogg from 6 – 8 p.m., September 26 and will include a formal presentation highlighting the USACE’s navigation mission and the proposed dredged material management plan.
