GW Partners, LLC
We have signed a lease with GW Partners, LLC, to use 4 acres of upland, part of The WILD Center property, for the next two years. GW Partners will use this area to store the sand they use in conjunction with the capping function related to the PCB cleanup of the Fox River water system. There will be no PCBs stored on our property – and the monetary terms of this lease will allow Wild Ones to own the entire WILD Center site debt free.
The lease also provides for a driveway, constructed by GW Partners, which we will be able to continue to use as The WILD Center driveway/parking area, upon completion of the project.
Also, upon completion of the project, GW Partners will work with Wild Ones to restore the site as an oak savanna.
Read the Proposed Layout of property usage for the Little Lake Butte des Morts sediment remediation project (PDF file). The property is being used as an additional sand cover and cap placement material staging area.
The Fox River is the site of one of the largest PCB-contamination clean-up projects in the world. Wild Ones is pleased to be able to play a small part in reverting this river to a healthier environment. Learn more about the PCB clean-up process.
