The Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy has scheduled an online public hearing for Tuesday on a proposal by Revere Dock LLC to perform shoreline work connected to a dock collapse and bank failure into the Detroit River last November.

Revere proposes to remove material deposited in the river from the collapse as well as river sediments and dispose of them at a licensed disposal facility. The company also is proposing building an approximately 600-foot-long steel sea wall to replace the existing pile-supported concrete dock at the site.

The plan also outlines plans for ways to control erosion, sedimentation and turbidity in the water during construction to comply with any local, state and federal regulations that apply to the restoration project.
