USA: ODNR to Discuss Indian Lake State Park Dredging Program

The public is invited to attend an open house to learn more about the Ohio Department of Natural Resources’ (ODNR) current and future dredging operations at Indian Lake State Park. The open house will be held on Saturday, Sept. 7, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the multipurpose building located at the state park campground in Lakeview.

Recent funding provided in House Bill 59, the state budget bill, will enable ODNR to purchase a combination dredge, which will be permanently located at Indian Lake. Visitors to the open house will be able to learn more about the new dredge equipment and related dredging technologies.

Open house attendees will also have an opportunity to discuss the current dredge plan for Indian Lake with staff from Ohio State Parks as well as provide input for long-range dredge project planning.

Background

Dredging creates adequate water depths for safe boating navigation. The 5,800-acre Indian Lake is one of Ohio’s largest and most popular inland lakes. Each year, Indian Lake supports about 70,000 boat and personal watercraft excursions.

The open house will also feature a variety of displays including: information on dredge machine operations; how the dredging process works; dredge material relocation areas; previous dredge accomplishments at Indian Lake and future dredge activities.
