SBU canal dredging landfill takes in non-toxic soils

The Sturgeon Bay Utilities landfill used to store dredging material from the Sturgeon Bay Shipping Canal is non-toxic and extensively tested before storage.  The utility is currently seeking a new DNR permit to operate the 30-acre site.  The landfill can take in tens-of-thousands of tons of material from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers or the U.S. Coast Guard in a season or none at all.  SBU Operations Manager Cliff White says the landfill tests all material for PCB's and is not about to run out of space anytime soon.



A public meeting on the SBU's request for a new DNR permit for the landfill will be held May 29th at the Sturgeon Bay Utility offices on East Vine Street in Sturgeon Bay.  The meeting starts at 3:30 PM.
