Panel Event: Public Rights in Milwaukee’s Fresh Coast

January 19, 2022, 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

The UWM Center for Water Policy in the School of Freshwater Sciences presents a virtual event that explores the past, present and future of Milwaukee’s Fresh Coast.

Much of the city’s coastline and river fronts are not original — they were built on lakebed or riverbed that was filled to create new land. Join us as we learn from six of the leading minds in this field about what the public trust doctrine is, what is public enough to satisfy the public trust doctrine, whether the state and other developers can exclude the public on these newly created lands and what the permissible uses are on the newly created land.
