Port Wing Wastewater Pond Restoration

Purpose

Port Wing Wastewater Pond restoration design plan and implementation to hydrologically reconnect 10 acres of wetland in Bayfield County. Project design costs are $67,770 and implementation costs (2017 Coastal Wetlands grant) are $544,140.

Outcome

In this project, an engineering firm will be contracted to develop design plans for restoration at the site. A survey of current elevations and communities will be conducted. Design plans will identify target elevations for the restored site, including re-routing the stream channel. Necessary actions to restore native vegetation to the site will be identified. Disposal locations of berm material will be identified. Costs for restoration will be estimated. Since the Town is the property owner at this site, the Town will solicit bids and manage contractors to complete this work. Once
