ODNR gets $100,000 to fight erosion
Port Clinton New Herald
Published December 13th, 2004


The Controlling Board has approved a federal grant to support erosion control on Lake Erie's coast. The Ohio Department of Natural Resources will receive a $100,000 boost for programs that monitor coastal recession from the National Oceanic and Atmosphere Administration.

The program studies erosion rates to predict future losses and educate the public about erosion and flooding.

Rep. Chris Redfern, D-Catawba Island, who announced the action, said he appreciates the enormous impact of erosion on those that live around Lake Erie.

"When we lose coastline, we can suffer an enormous economic hit," he said. "The elements will always put our coastal property, businesses and economy at risk."

"I applaud the ODNR and the NOAA for their efforts to curb the risks of coastal erosion and educate us all about it."
