The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources have identified several acres of impacted filled lakebed soils, sediments and groundwater along Ashland's lakefront as a site requiring cleanup. This area is impacted from industrial uses at the turn of the 20th century.
In 2017, crews will remove wood waste, construction debris and approximately 125,000 cubic yards of impacted sediments located south of a newly installed breakwater. Dredging will take place from land and barge-based excavators using GPS controlled scoops with special environmental buckets. Numerous environmental controls, safeguards and monitoring will be in place to ensure that sediment, air and water quality standards are met.
The dredged material is taken to an on-site tented structure to be sorted, screened and dewatered and then taken to a licensed approved landfill.
