Improving impaired waterways of Green Bay through a regional approach is now part of a new, large-scale water quality improvement program that was publicly launched on October 20, 2021 by NEW Water, the brand of the Green Bay Metropolitan Sewerage District. 

The NEW Watershed Program in Ashwaubenon Creek and Dutchman Creek is a long-term adaptive management strategy to address area water quality concerns while providing a cost-effective, alternative compliance option for NEW Water’s wastewater discharge permit with the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (WDNR).

The Fox River and Bay of Green Bay are impaired by phosphorus and sediment entering the watershed from a variety of sources within the Northeast Wisconsin region. NEW Water’s NEW Watershed Program in ACDC is a large-scale, Adaptive Management program modeled on the success of NEW Water’s Silver Creek Adaptive Management Pilot Project that began in 2014.
