Governor Kasich: New Plan to Address Lake Erie Dredging Issues (VIDEO)

Governor John R. Kasich has recently joined local and federal officials to celebrate the innovative dredging strategy of the Toledo Harbor by signing a proclamation of collaboration between the state, city of Toledo and the Toledo-Lucas County Port Authority.

The Ohio Environmental Council praised Kasich’s administration for engineering a pilot project to find beneficial new uses for sediments dredged from the Toledo harbor.

Hundreds of thousands of cubic yards of dredged material, which is high in organic material and nutrients, may be recycled for reuse as a soil amendment for farm fields and gardens or as fill material at the site of blighted houses that have been raised.

The clean sediments the pilot project is targeting for reuse are separate from dredged harbor sediments that are contaminated with toxic materials. By law, toxic sediments must be disposed of in a confined disposal facility.
