Council Keeps Little Lake Restoration Moving Forward

The Sturgeon Bay City Council took action that will keep the process of rehabilitating Bradley Lake, also known as Little Lake, at Sunset Park in Sturgeon Bay moving forward during its regular meeting Tuesday. Fueled by grants, donations, city tax dollars, and the help-of the Sturgeon Bay Noon Rotary Club, the construction of the engineered wetland at the site is happening this month. The council action Tuesday means that the engineering phase for the lake itself can begin. As part of that process, there will be public meetings, work plan development, sediment characterization, permitting, final dredge/disposal design, plans, specifications and bidding, and, the contract award. In order to move forward on the Little Lake remediation project, the engineering must be completed. The hope is to work on the engineering while the wetland is being built this year. Funds would be sought to continue the project as soon as engineering is completed. The recommendation that Foth of Green Bay be hired to do the engineering, at a cost of $78,900, was approved helping to bring that portion of the project closer to reality.
