USA: EPA Schedules Meeting to Discuss Ashtabula River Recovery

Ohio EPA and the Ashtabula River Remedial Action Program Advisory Council have scheduled a Feb. 20, 2014, public meeting to update the community on restoration of the Ashtabula River Area of Concern.

The meeting will begin at 6:30 p.m. at Kent State University’s Ashtabula Campus (Blue and Gold Room), 3300 Lake Road West, Ashtabula.

The Agency and advisory council will discuss a proposal to remove three of six beneficial use impairments (BUIs) that were placed on the lower 2.5 miles of river in the 1980s, when it was first named one of 43 Great Lakes Areas of Concern.

After years of restoration work, including an unprecedented $75 million dredging project to remove 650,000 cubic yards of contaminated sediment, the Ashtabula River is now recovering.
