First ever survey of the lake will take place Aug. 30
By Nancy Allen
Grand Lake is among 19 lakes in Ohio and 909 across the United States selected in the first ever Survey of the Nation's Lakes, said Grand Lake St. Marys State Manager Craig Morton.
Grand Lake will be surveyed on Aug. 30, he said.
Mandated by Congress and sponsored by the U.S. EPA and U.S. Geological Survey, the survey's purpose is to determine and compare conditions in inland lakes, ponds and reservoirs in the lower 48 states. The state EPA is conducting Ohio's portion of the survey. [More]
