Lorain scores $500,000 for water quality at Lakeview Park beach

The Morning Journal

LORAIN — Water quality will get better at Lorain’s Lakeview Park with a new project to be paid for with a grant from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

Lorain will get $500,000, one of four grants awarded through the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative to fund green infrastructure projects to improve water quality in Lake Erie.

The city of Lorain will use the $500,000 grant to improve storm water management at the city’s Lakeview Park.  

The improvements will reduce the amount of bacteria in storm water being directly discharged to Lake Erie and will reduce the frequency of bacteria-related beach closures, according to plans.
