Sedimentation and Nutrient Loading

Sediments carry nutrients from rivers and streams into Lake Erie and can reduce water clarity

Ohio Sea Grant works with researchers at universities throughout Ohio to find ways to decrease both sediment loading and nutrient run-off into Lake Erie and its tributaries. Projects also include an extension component that educates stakeholders such as farmers and city planners about how they can keep the Lake Erie watershed healthy.
