Fund For Lake Michigan

Menomonee River Parkway Wetlands Restoration Initiative

  • Grant Recipient: Milwaukee County
  • Amount: $220,000
  • Year: 2012
  • Watershed: Menomonee River
  • Focus Area: Habitat Restoration

The Milwaukee County Department of Parks, Recreation, and Culture will convert a degraded 2.5-acre man-made lagoon near the intersection of Burleigh Street and the Menomonee River Parkway into a six-acre wetland surrounded by four acres of restored upland habitat. The restored area will trap stormwater and pollutants that currently drain directly into the Menomonee River.
