Specifications include, but are not limited to: It is the intent of Brown County to contract with a vendor for the development and implementation of an upland
beneficial reuse program of dredged material similar to the sediment dredged from the Fox River watershed.
The Port would like to work with the WDNR to establish a ‘Working Group’ comprised of
representatives from the Port, WDNR, Corps of Engineers, municipal public works staff and other
interested parties. The Working Group would work with the Wisconsin Department of Natural
Resources to further characterize the Port’s current sediment at the Bay Port Dredged Material
Rehandling Facility. This will help all stakeholders gain a better understanding of the material as well
as to create upper confidence limits for the dredged sediment managed by the Port. It will also assist
stakeholders in creating an upland beneficial reuse program for dredged sediment where material
managed by the Port of Green Bay could be reused in Brown County and the surrounding region.
The following list includes suggested tasks that could be part the development of a sediment
beneficial reuse program for sediment managed by the Port of Green Bay. All tasks may not be
necessary nor should it be considered the full range of steps to be accomplished. The consultant is
encouraged to suggest other tasks that could be helpful in the development of a beneficial reuse
• Provide a summary of the Contractor’s expertise in successfully harvesting, producing and
marketing sands, sediments and engineered soil products, especially within the past five
years. Summary should include an overview of typical products produced, typical types of
customers and typical quantities produced and sold.
• Establish a Working Group of collective stakeholders who can contribute to the development
of a beneficial reuse permit for non-site specific reuse applications. This Working Group
should at a minimum consist of representatives from WDNR, Port of Green Bay, Corps of
Engineers, municipal public works staff and other interested parties. An environmental
laboratory firm may also be of benefit to the working group as well as a university researcher
who has experience with relevant environmental data.
• The Working Group may need to develop and implement a formal Sampling and Analysis Plan
(SAP) aimed at further characterizing sediment placed at Bay Port. The Working Group should
collectively establish the framework for a comprehensive sampling plan for the Port’s Bay Port
Facility. The SAP should include elements such as a sampling strategy, a total number of
samples, COCs, QA/QC, comparative standards, the texture of sediment sampled, etc.
