Newt Marine Gets Habitat Restoration Contract

A  Dubuque based company has been awarded a contract to build a habitat restoration project on the Mississippi. The St. Paul District of the U.S. Army Corp of Engineers says Newt Marine Service will construct the 8.8 million dollar project in the Upper Mississippi River National Wildlife and Fish Refuge close to Prairie du Chien, Wisconsin.  The project, which is scheduled to start next spring, is being done to restore eroding peninsulas around McGregor Lake and dredge backwater fish habitat. It will also enhance forest habitat in the flood plain.
