Duluth is one of thirteen recipient cities that were rewarded with grants that will go towards funding projects that are going to improve the water quality around swimming beaches.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency announced the reward of Great Lakes Restoration Initiative grants totaling $2 million to be distributed to 13 cities including Duluth. The initiative was launched in 2010 to protect and restore the largest system of fresh surface water in the world according to the press release.

Duluth will be receiving $58,000 that will go towards building rain gardens, restoring shoreline buffers at Park Point, and planting trees. I love this idea and I can’t wait to see how it looks after it’s all done.

Five Wisconsin cities including Ashland were also granted money. Ashland will receive $175,000 that will go towards constructing infiltration swales, plant native vegetation and replenish beaches that stretch across 2.9 acres.

Other cities that were awarded grants include:

East Chicago, Indiana

Ashtabula, Ohio

Cleveland, Ohio

Huron, Ohio

Sandusky, Ohio

Vermillion, Ohio

Evans, New York

Algoma, Wisconsin

Manitowoc, Wisconsin

Two Rivers, Wisconsin

Wind Point, Wisconsin
