Dredged Material Management Facility (DMMF)

Learn more about the status of the Dredged Material Management Facility, including new information about the design, by watching the November 2022 update video!

Most of the contaminated sediment from Milwaukee’s rivers is planned to be placed in the proposed DMMF. A DMMF is an area specifically designed and engineered for the containment of dredged material and control of potential releases of contaminants to the environment.

To build the Dredged Material Management Facility, we first need to relocate a combined sewer overflow outfall. Watch the October 2022 Combined Sewer Overflow Outfall #195 Relocation project video to learn more.
