From the press release …
A public meeting to discuss the disposal of dredged material from the Kinnickinnic River in Pulaski Park (in Milwaukee) will be held by the Department of Natural Resources at 4 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 8, 2018, in the Common Council Chambers of the South Milwaukee City Administration Building, 2424 15th Avenue, South Milwaukee.
The Milwaukee Metropolitan Sewerage District (MMSD) is proposing to place dredged material (solids removed from the bed of any surface water) from a portion of the Kinnickinnic River located in Milwaukee County’s Pulaski Park, Milwaukee onto the Falk Landfill, which is owned by Rexnord. The Falk landfill is located at 13th Avenue north of Rawson Avenue in the City of South Milwaukee.
The MMSD is planning to remove about 60,000 cubic yards of soil and sediment along the banks of the Kinnickinnic River and approximately 10,000 cubic yards will be disposed on the Falk Landfill.
The purpose of the meeting is to solicit public comment and answer questions on the proposal. There will be a brief introduction and explanation of the project by DNR and representatives of the MMSD and Rexnord.
Please consider attending to learn more about what is being proposed.

Sure let’s let this happen
What could go wrong
Close to the creek
Close to the high school
In the oak creek watershed
So let’s clean up contaminated soil
And dump it in south milwaukee close to
The creek that empties into our pride
And joy grant park beach
And don’t say it won’t flow that way
Contaminants leach threw the soil
Might take years to show up but once it’s
There it’s here to stay. As if our water shed
Area isn’t polluted enough
And the ground water runs that way
It needs to be clarified that the dredging will come from Pulaski park on Milwaukee’s near south Side. Not the Cudahy Pulaski Park. This was confusing to me.
But what’s in it for us, $$$
