Studies of the sediment deposits and transport within the Milwaukee River system from 1993 to 2003 identified significant deposits of PCBs within the Estabrook impoundment. Based on the studies, WDNR determined 3 priority areas for addressing the sediments within the impoundment. The Blatz Pavilion cleanup was completed in 2008. The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources and Milwaukee County have been working with US EPA’s Great Lakes National Program Office Legacy Act Program to cleanup contaminated sediments and restore streambanks in Lincoln Park Phase I area. The phase II area is currently under study by the Legacy Act program.
