The Hog Island and Newton Creek Ecological Restoration Master Plan provides a blueprint for the restoration of natural communities and ecosystem processes for Newton Creek, the Hog Island Inlet, and Hog Island in Superior, Wisconsin. Historically, this area has been contaminated by industrial discharges and a former municipal combined sewer overflow. From 1997 to 2005, multiple partners remediated the contaminated sediments in Newton Creek and Hog Island Inlet. Through a process of stakeholder engagement and collaboration, this Ecological Restoration Master Plan intends to build upon the success of these remediation efforts by proposing a guiding Vision as well as specific Goals, Objectives, and Actions that will help to restore terrestrial, riparian, wetlands, and aquatic habitats; increase ecosystem biodiversity and resilience; and reduce threats to the natural communities in the area. It also intends to increase environmental awareness, community enjoyment, and economic vitality through passive recreational, educational, and stewardship opportunities.
