Meeting to dig up dredging issues

The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources is planning a public meeting to address the disposal of dredged materials in the area this Wednesday in Sturgeon Bay.  The plan is to continue using the facility on Barge Road that is owned by Sturgeon Bay Utilities (SBU).  According to DNR hydrogeologist Jackie Marciulionis the biggest concern usually is how the dredging material may impact the environment nearby. 



Maciulionis says the higher lake and bay levels in the area have made for less demand for dredging this year. The primary users of the disposal facility include the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the US Coast Guard, and private property owners.  The public meeting will be held at 3:30 on Wednesday afternoon at the SBU office on East Vine Street.
