Project Title & Description
Lakeview Beach Green Infrastructure Project
This project supports the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative and the Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement, pursuant to Public Law 113-6. The City of Lorain will construct a “green” stormwater treatment system at the City�s Lakeview Park, located on Lake Erie. This new system, which will be located at the west end of Lakeview Beach, consists of a wetland sand filter approximately 30 feet wide and 120 feet long that will work in conjunction with a disinfection-based pretreatment device. The new system will reduce bacteria (E coli) in stormwater being directly discharged to Lake Erie at Lakeview Beach and will reduce the frequency of bacteria�related beach closures.
