MADISON (WKOW) -- The public has a chance to voice their opinions on a proposal about disposal of dredging waste on Washington Island.
The Town of Washington has proposed dredging the Detroit Harbor Navigational Channel to improve access for the Washington Island Ferry Line. The town asked Wisconsin's Department of Natural Resources for permission to dispose about 134,500 cubic yards of dredged material on town property.
The DNR preliminarily determined that the plan would not cause significant adverse effects on the environment.
A public hearing is scheduled on August 27th at the island's Mosling Recreation Center. The DNR will also take written comments through August 26th.
