SAULT STE. MARIE, Mich. --
SAULT STE. MARIE, Mich.- U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Detroit District will host a hybrid public meeting 7 p.m., April 20, 2022, to talk about the need for closing the Soo Locks Hydro Plant tail race.
The Detroit District needs to close the Hydro Plant tail race for upcoming New Lock at the Soo construction and permanently close a portion of the tail race for safety reasons.
The Corps of Engineers wants to hear from anglers and concerned stakeholders before making any official decisions. The tail race is and has been a very popular community fishing spot. The Corps of Engineers goal during New Lock at the Soo construction is to have minimal effects to the community.
Participants can attend in-person or virtually.
The in-person meeting will take place at the Lake Superior State University (LSSU) Walker Cisler Center in the Anchor Room. A LSSU parking pass will not be needed.
