Staging Facilities

The De Pere / Rockland staging facility supported the capping and sand covering operations from Little Rapids to the De Pere Dam during the first four years of the project. The staging site was also used for welding and installation of the pipeline in the river. 

Sand, gravel and stone was piped from the staging area to spreading barges on the river during the capping and sand covering operations.

Since 2013, the staging area has been located at 2661 S. Broadway in Green Bay.    

The staging area may be relocated as the project proceeds downstream. The staging area is used to stockpile sand and gravel which is piped to the spreader barges for the capping and covering operations.
