DNR awards $690,000 in waterway improvement grants

– Six Indiana counties with lakes and rivers plagued by logjams or sediment accumulations are sharing more than $690,000 in state grants to clear out those waterways.

The state Department of Natural Resources says the grant money will go for log or sediment removal on seven lakes and four waterways in Brown, Elkhart, Greene, Kosciusko, LaGrange and Steuben counties.

DNR Director of Fish & Wildlife Mark Reiter says the projects will improve the recreational experience of boaters, anglers, canoe enthusiasts and others.

The sediment removal grants will go toward dredging areas heavily used by boaters, including some lake inlets that are a source of lake-clogging sediments.

The logjam removal projects are intended to reduce erosion caused by streams that are diverted by the accumulation of logs.
