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

Recommended Posts

Rick

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.
