The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Buffalo District, has awarded a $3.4 million contract to Huffman Equipment Rental, East Lake, OH, to create a 600-foot revetment along the Lake Erie shoreline that will protect the Lake County Raw Water Pump station.

The bluff along Lake Erie is highly erosive due to strong ice and wave action, eroding approximately 1.8 feet per year. Projecting the pump station is essential because it provides approximately 40,000 Lake County residents with clean drinking water, USACE said.

Commenting the latest news, Congressman Dave Joyce, said: “This contract demonstrates the ability for federal and local agencies to come together and accomplish important work that will benefit our communities in Northeast Ohio that depend on the Raw Water Pump Station for their drinking water.”

“It is a critical time for investing in our Nation’s infrastructure,” said Lt. Col. Jason Toth, USACE Buffalo District Commander. “It is important to note that the Corps of Engineers’ civil works program touches the lives of almost every American and is a vital part of the national fabric.” 

This project is being conducted under the Corps of Engineers’ Continuing Authority Program Section 103, Beach Restoration and Shoreline Projection.
