The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources will implement six habitat restoration projects and conduct three unique assessments within the Sheboygan River Area of Concern (AOC). Habitat restoration projects will enhance approximately one mile of river shoreline, improve ten acres of wetland in the Sheboygan River floodplain, treat twelve acres of riparian area affected by non-native vegetation, and enhance one mile of riverine aquatic habitat. Assessments will document contaminants present in waterfowl, evaluate incidence of fish tumors, and quantify the benthic and open water invertebrate community of the Sheboygan River. The expected outcome of these projects is the removal of up to six Beneficial Use Impairments present in this AOC.
