Luke Chute, Seneca Lake Among Recipients of Conservancy Grants
Posted on: 03/21/2013

Nine community projects located throughout the 18-county Muskingum River Watershed Conservancy District region will receive a total of $750,000 in funding this year from the District’s “Partners in Watershed Management” grant program.
 
The District Board of Directors recently approved the grants that assist local groups, organizations and communities with water quality projects, flood reduction and mitigation programs, and other efforts.
 
The largest award was to the City of Massillon in Stark County – $350,000 as part of a $2 million levee improvement project.
 
Closer to our end of the watershed…
 
- The Noble County Commissioners received $85,000 for sewer system design in the Seneca Lake area.
 
- The Friends of the Lower Muskingum received $10,000 as part of a $48,000 riverbank stabilization project at Luke Chute, the historic lock and dam that straddles the river at the Morgan-Washington County line.
