Join us to learn about the planned cleanup of the Milwaukee River Floodplains.

Recent soil samples indicate the presence of contaminants on the east and west sides of the river between the former Estabrook Dam and the former North Avenue Dam. To ensure public health and safety there is a historic river cleanup effort underway. Find out why the cleaning of Milwaukee’s waterways is important, what planning efforts are underway, the estimated timeline, and how to get involved.
