Dredging Contract Approved

The Shell Rock River Watershed District Board of Managers Thursday approved a nearly $5.1 million contract with LaCrosse, Wisconsin-based J.F. Brennan Co. Inc. for the first phase of Fountain Lake dredging.

The company is expected to possibly complete initial survey and staging work in May, with dredging beginning in June. First phase work is expected to last until the end of 2019.

After the vote, interim Watershed District Administrator Andy Henschel said J.F. Brennan compared favorably to the two other companies that were in the best value valuation process, Newt Marine and White Lake Dock & Dredge. J.F. Brennan reportedly added incentives to the project that the Watershed District did not make specifications on.
