The Milwaukee Metropolitan Sewage District has been working hard to clean up Milwaukee’s waterways for the past 15 years. And just recently, MMSD along with the City of Milwaukee unveiled the new river skimmer boat, Lynryd Skymmr!

The skimmer boat cleans up thousands of pounds of garbage, logs and tree branches each year. This effort provides a positive and clean image/experience not only for Milwaukee residents, but for the many tourists that visit our city and the surrounding waterways.

So I went to the formal unveiling of the ‘Lynryd Skymmr’ and spoke with MMSD’s Executive Director, Kevin Shafer, and Captain Scott Cassavant.
