OutdoorMN News - DNR seeks comments on Kingsbury-Grassy Point habitat restoration project

Recommended Posts


The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources is accepting public comments through April 18 on an environmental assessment worksheet (EAW) for the Kingsbury–Grassy Point Habitat Restoration Project, located in Highland Township in St. Louis County.

The Kingsbury Bay–Grassy Point project sites are located at the upper end of the Duluth-Superior Port in the St. Louis River Estuary. The DNR proposes to mitigate contaminated sediments, legacy wood waste and excessive sedimentation to restore 240 acres of fish and wildlife habitat within a part of the St. Louis River Area of Concern.

Detrimental materials will be removed, contained onsite or capped in place. Areas with excess sedimentation will be deepened and the clean materials transported and reused for shoreline improvements. Bay habitats that support productive Lake Superior marshes will be restored.

A copy of the EAW is available on the Kingsbury-Grassy Point habitat restoration page.

Additional copies may be requested by calling 651-259-5082.

Copies are also available for public review at:

  • Minnesota DNR Library, 500 Lafayette Road, St. Paul, MN 55155.
  • Minnesota DNR northeast region headquarters, 1201 East Highway 2, Grand Rapids, MN 55744.
  • Hennepin County – Minneapolis Central Library, Government Documents, Second Floor, 300 Nicollet Mall, Minneapolis, MN 55401-1992.
  • Duluth Public Library, 520 West Superior St., Duluth, MN 55802.
  • Superior Public Library, 1530 Tower Ave., Superior WI 54880.

The EAW notice will be published in the March 19 EQB Monitor. Written comments on the EAW must be submitted no later than 4:30 p.m. Wednesday, April 18, to the attention of Kate Fairman, EAW project manager, Environmental Policy and Review Unit, DNR Ecological and Water Resources Division, 500 Lafayette Road, St. Paul, MN 55155-4025.

Electronic or email comments may be sent to [email protected] with “Kingsbury–Grassy Point EAW” in the subject line. If submitting comments electronically, include name and mailing address. Written comments may also be sent by fax to 651-296-1811. Names and addresses will be published as part of the EAW record.

      I was up at the VC today and enquired about bayview, sounds like they are hoping to be open for the week of the 4th.

      Too far....

      I think I lost a prop near there last year.  Cotter pin had rusted out and I didn't notice until boat wouldn't move.... good thing I had a kicker on.     If anybody hooks a 14 by 21 Suzuki aluminum prop, on the west end, it's probably mine.

      Maybe.......maybe not😀

      So how about Bayview?  Anyone know when they will be open?  It'll be nice to have more choices on the lake.

      Not the one of the younger man....  Kid to me.    His background is an island..... right?

      Hmm, gotta take a look to see if they switched hoses when they put the Suzuki on my 98 Lund.

      Some model Ficht motors are known for having significant reliability problems.   That is why OMC filed Bankruptcy and ended up part of Bombardie.r and eventually got spun off as part of Bombardier Recreational Products (BRP).    I would sure want to do some homework about that model and year engine to see if it was a "bad one"   On the other hand if it is cheap enough that you could afford to put another motor on there....might be worth a stab...

      Sunnies and Crappies in shallow off docks...confirmed......lots of sorting....but lots of fun for kids, and grandpa's,  and can get some meals....recommend getting a stick to the size you want them to keep....burn through lots of bait...but cheap fun for all...and some nice ones mixed in.....
      This one WAS still in exceptionally good condition still.... replaced it anyways!!
