Officials to Discuss Beneficial Use of Dredge Material

Lake Erie is one of Ohio’s greatest assets and its harbors must be dredged regularly to keep ports open for shipping, the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency said in its latest announcement.

Much of the material dredged from the lake currently is dumped into the open waters of the lake. However, most of the material could be used for projects to benefit the environment and economy, Ohio EPA added.

In addition, Governor John Kasich signed Senate Bill 1 into law in 2015, which requires open lake disposal of dredged material to end by July 1, 2020.

Ohio is currently looking for alternatives to open lake disposal and wants to hear new ideas.

To facilitate the discussion, Ohio EPA is holding a dredge material workshop on May 11 at Lorain County Community College.

Registration for the “Digging Up Ideas Workshop” is open through April 27.
