Aurora gets $32,000 for watershed study
Beacon Journal

AURORA - The city of Aurora is getting $32,000 from the Ohio Department of Natural Resources to conduct an extensive study of the Walden watershed.

The grant will enable the city to avoid the use of rocks or riprap to control erosion along the streams in western Aurora.

Instead, the city will look at using natural means to limit erosion and flooding in the streams that flow into Tinkers Creek, a tributary of the Cuyahoga River.

The grant is one of seven totaling $884,220 in federal funds from the Great Lakes Coastal Restoration Grant program.

The Medina County Park District, along with park districts in Erie, Sandusky and Lorain counties, is getting $120,000 to map coastal lands and watersheds that empty into Lake Erie.
