Notice of Availability
Of the Sturgeon Lake Road Improvements EA/EAW Update
As the designated Responsible Governmental Unit (RGU), the City of Red Wing in coordination with the Prairie Island Indian Community (PIIC) are notifying the public of the availability of an Environmental Assessment (EA)/Discretionary Environmental Assessment Worksheet (EAW) Update for improvements to Sturgeon Lake Road in the city of Red Wing.
