Menomonee River Area of Concern Fish Passage

Purpose

The proposed project will remove concrete from the bed of the Menomonee River for a distance of 1,000-ft and replace it with a series of engineered pools and riffles with a rock substrate. This project would remove the final downstream fish passage barrier between Lake Michigan, the Milwaukee Estuary, and the stream and wetland habitats in the Menomonee River watershed. Most significantly, the project would restore Lake Michigan and Estuary potamodromous fish stock access to 37-miles of stream and over 1,000 acres of historical spawning, rearing and over-wintering deep water habitat.
