The U.S.ARMY CORPS of ENGINEERS (USACE) is currently soliciting public comments on the navigability of the Menominee River. This topic specifically refers to the past, present, or possible future use of the Menominee River (on both the Michigan and Wisconsin sides) and its Michigan tributaries for interstate or foreign commerce.
Navigability is defined as a body of water that is deep, wide, and calm enough for a water vessel (e.g. boat) to pass safely. This designation would give the USACE oversight of any proposed mining activity on the Menominee River.
Thank you for your help.
