Use of future dredged material at the quarry will be reviewed by the DNR for approval and/or concurrence. The purpose of the meeting is to solicit public comment and answer questions on the proposal. There will be a brief introduction and explanation of the project by DNR and Roen Salvage representatives. The meeting will then be opened up for questions and comments. All public comments will be considered by DNR when making a decision on the proposal.
