SHEBOYGAN, WI (WHBL) - The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has finished its dredging of contaminated materials from the Sheboygan River.  The river had been classified a toxic hot spot since the 1987 Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement.

Local, state and federal government bodies funded the over 80-million dollars to dredge the river and restore habitats along it, most coming from the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative.

With its completion, the river becomes only the second to be removed from a list of 43 ‘area of concern’ waterways in the United States and Canada.
