SOUTH MILWAUKEE - A public meeting to discuss the disposal of dredged material from the Kinnickinnic River in Pulaski Park will be held by the Department of Natural Resources at 4 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 8, 2018, in the Common Council Chambers of the South Milwaukee City Administration Building, 2424 15th Avenue, South Milwaukee.

The Milwaukee Metropolitan Sewerage District (MMSD) is proposing to place dredged material (solids removed from the bed of any surface water) from a portion of the Kinnickinnic River located in Milwaukee County's Pulaski Park, Milwaukee onto the Falk Landfill, which is owned by Rexnord. The Falk landfill is located at 13th Avenue north of Rawson Avenue in the City of South Milwaukee.

The MMSD is planning to remove about 60,000 cubic yards of soil and sediment along the banks of the Kinnickinnic River and approximately 10,000 cubic yards will be disposed on the Falk Landfill.

The purpose of the meeting is to solicit public comment and answer questions on the proposal. There will be a brief introduction and explanation of the project by DNR and representatives of the MMSD and Rexnord. The DNR is required under s. 289.54(2), Wis. Stats. to hold a public meeting before it can approve a request to dispose of dredged materials.

Interested citizens who cannot attend are encouraged to call or write with questions or comments to Gerald DeMers, DNR engineer with the Waste and Materials Management Program, whom can be reached by phone at 414-263-8594, e-mail at or the DNR Milwaukee Service Center, 2300 N.
