Partnership With MMSD for Kletzsch Dam Fish Passage & Milwaukee Estuary Area of Concern
Milwaukee County has partnered with Milwaukee Metropolitan Sewerage District (MMSD) to achieve Area of Concern goals related to the Kletzsch Dam Fish Passage Project. MMSD is working with contractor Inter-Fluve, Milwaukee County Parks and WDNR to explore the community preference for east side fish passage. The project will:
- Address required dam repairs
- Improve in-river and riparian corridor habitat
- Provide fish passage for native species within the Milwaukee Estuary AOC
If land can be acquired and the project challenges can be overcome, MMSD will take the lead on implementing fish passage design and construction, along with the dam repairs.
Milwaukee County will retain ownership of the dam and fishway and will be responsible for all future maintenance.
For updates on the Kletzsch Dam Fish Passage and other AOC projects connect with the Waterway Restoration Partnership.
