LARE grant helps fund Martin Lake project
Wednesday Aug 06, 2014 11:42am

MARTIN LAKE - The Oliver-Martin Lakes Conservation and Improvement Association is getting a grant from the Indiana’s Lake and River Enhancement program (LARE).

The $16,900 grant fund up to 80% of the cost to complete two projects identified earlier in a Feasibility, Engineering and Design Study (FEDS), completed last Spring.

Both projects involve installing piping and stone in two LaGrange County regulated ditches. Both ditches have 90 degree bends that cause significant soil erosion and distribution of nutrient rich silt to the east basin of Martin Lake.

Patrick Wiltshire, Chairman of the Water Quality Improvement Committee, says "It is imperative that we make these kinds of investments to improve and maintain the water clarity and quality of Oliver, Olin and Martin Lakes. This kind of collaboration between our Association, the DNR and LaGrange County will help make significant progress towards this long term goal".

Requests for construction bids will be made in the coming weeks, with construction to follow later this Fall.
