US EPA expands Black River grant

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency awarded more than half a million dollars to the county commissioners to improve the water quality along the Black River. According to a Tuesday news release from the EPA, the grant is a supplemental award to an existing $600,000 grant, increasing the total amount to just more than $1 million for the Black River Area of Concern. The area of concern contains the main part of Black River from Lorain to Elyria, the French Creek watershed and shore of Lake Erie and was created as a result of discharges from industrial operations on the lower river that led to contamination.
