Under the modified program, a small portion of the discount will come back to Milwaukee County as a way to generate County income without raising taxes.

 

Lincoln Park Sediment Remediation Project
This project is designed to address the human health and environmental concerns related to contaminated sediment deposits and transport within the western oxbow of the Milwaukee River near the Lincoln Creek. Phase I of this more than $24 Million project is wrapping up in the Spring of 2012 with new native plantings along the riverbanks. Next up is a feasibility study of Phase II which will look at contamination in the center channel of Lincoln Park all the way downstream to the Estabrook Dam.
