Trustees for natural resources in the Fox River Natural Resource Damage Assessment at Green Bay, Wisconsin gathered to announce $46 million in newly available settlement funds, along with an updated restoration plan and supplemental environmental assessment for the Lower Fox River/Green Bay. Trustees include the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources, Oneida Tribe and Menominee Indian Tribe of Wisconsin.


Recent Natural Resource Damage Assessment settlements totaling $46 million - the largest set of settlements to date - will continue to support-on-the-ground restoration activities in northeast Wisconsin. This brings the total recovery for natural resource damages to $106 million (in 2016 dollars) and marks the close of the natural resource damages claim from ongoing litigation at the site.
