DNR grants to address sediment and logjams
Start Date: 5/6/2015 All Day
Event Description:

Five Indiana counties will fix sediment and logjam problems in lakes and rivers thanks to $320,900 in grant funding this spring from the DNR.

The grants are part of the Lake and River Enhancement (LARE) program in DNR’s Division of Fish & Wildlife.

The 11 projects selected for spring 2015 involve 11 lakes and three rivers. They were selected in a competitive process from among applications submitted by local sponsors. The grantees must share at least 20 percent of the cost.

LARE grants are “user-funded/user-benefiting” generated through the LARE fee paid by boat owners annually when they register their boats with the Bureau of Motor Vehicles. These grants allow for the completion of projects that would be very difficult for local organizations to fund on their own.

“We look to projects such as these to enhance public accessibility to selected Indiana waterways and lakes, thus increasing recreation potentials for boaters, anglers, paddlers and others who enjoy Indiana’s lakes and rivers,” said Mark Reiter, director of DNR Fish & Wildlife.

The sediment removal grants will increase public access to lakes through dredging of areas heavily used by boaters and lake inlets that are a sediment source to lakes.

The logjam removal projects should reduce erosion caused by streams diverted by logjams. The removal also will improve access for boats, kayaks and canoes.

The list of projects by water body, county, project type and grant award is attached.
