Habitat Improvement in the Milwaukee River Estuary
This project supports the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative and the Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement, pursuant to Public Law 112-74. Specifically, this project will create habitat for fish and other aquatic organisms along 15 miles of hardened river shorelines within Milwaukee Estuary Area of Concern. This project will install small rubber baskets filled with native aquatic plants affixed to shoreline walls and larger floating structures containing a mix of submergent and emergent plants and submerged habitat structure. Monitoring data will document long-term viability of plantings and use by fish. The results will be applicable to over 130 Great Lakes ports and harbors.
