Cleaning Up Our Toxic Legacy: Milwaukee River Greenway

Virtual Public Meeting

Monday, May 9   |  5:30 PM via Zoom

Join us to learn about the planned clean up of contaminated material in the Milwaukee River Greenway and in various sanitary sewer pipes near the Greenway. Find out why the cleaning of Milwaukee’s waterways is important, what planning efforts are underway, the results of contaminated soils sampling in the floodplain areas along the east and west sides of the river between Estabrook Dam and the former North Avenue Dam, and what to expect when an upcoming sanitary sewer cleanup project along Humboldt Avenue between Capitol Drive and Locust Avenue begins. This community meeting is part of a larger initiative to clean up the Milwaukee Estuary Area of Concern (AOC).
