Sediment remediation is like a construction project on the water. It can involve large equipment, bright lights, and noise. Many projects even continue into the night and on weekends to speed up the process. Remediation can feel inconvenient, but a bit of patience results in a big payoff.
If the East Chicago Waterways cleanup plan develops into a funded remediation project, short-term community disruptions will be listed here. For example, some areas on the water will not be accessible for days or weeks at a time. Once those targeted sediment areas are cleaned up, recreation in those areas can resume. If sediment is transported for disposal on land, truck routes will also be provided here.
