Two weeks ago, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency began to dredge contaminated sediment out of Howards Bay in Superior, Wisconsin. Howards Bay is one of 43 "Areas of Concern" in the Great Lakes ecosystem identified by the United States and Canada.

KUMD's Chris Harwood speaks with Corey Weston, Chief of Construction and Survey with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers about how the dredging will proceed, and where and how the estimated 75,000 cubic yards of contaminated sediment will be solidified and stored. 

Chris Harwood is The North 1033’s Production Director and (acting) Program Director, a morning/daytime host, and the host of Soul Village. He is also a musician, a music historian, an audio engineer, and an avid record collector.
