Kasich signs Executive Order to further protect Lake Erie -
On February 11, Governor Kasich signed an executive order providing the Ohio EPA Director with the authority to prohibit open lake disposal of dredge material in Lake Erie if the material could result in higher levels of chemicals that bioaccumulate in fish, such as PCBs, or if disposal would violate any international treaties or compacts.
One result will be to ensure that dredge material from Cleveland Harbor and the Cuyahoga River is disposed of in a confined disposal facility.
