Background

The Burnham Canal site is located in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The area consists of Miller Compressing Company's former wire reclamation furnace area and part of the Burnham Canal from its western terminus to the 11th Street Bridge. Site activities led to soil and sediment contamination. Planning and design work for the site’s long-term remedy is ongoing. The site is not listed on the National Priorities List (NPL) but is considered to be an NPL-caliber site and is being addressed through the Superfund Alternative Approach.
