Curbing erosion reduces pollution in Lake Michigan

A nearly $800,000 project reduced soil erosion in a ravine about 35 miles north of Chicago. The Lake Bluff Ravine project — which reduced storm water runoff into a creek that winds through the ravine and armored eroding stream banks that bled tons of dirt into Lake Michigan — will keep about 300 tons of sediment from washing into the lake annually. The project was funded largely by the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative. Read more here.
