Cleanup continues on Fox River floor


Brennan Marine employees work from a dredging barge removing PCBs from the Fox River just south of the Ray Nitschke Memorial Bridge in downtown Green Bay.

GREEN BAY – Maybe you’ve noticed it recently: the Mark Anthony quietly working its way along the river in the downtown Green Bay area.

It’s a slow process, with the dredge seemingly just sitting there in the water, when in fact it’s been taking up contaminated dirt from the river bottom by the tons — 4.5 million cubic yards of it so far — as it inches along, cleaning about two acres of river bottom every day and a half.

The dredge has been in the water during boating season every year since 2009, but this year is the first time Green Bay residents would have seen it so close to home. It’s a sign that its work is nearing completion.
