A grant for Griffy Lake in Monroe County will fund a sediment removal project.

Several Indiana counties will benefit from a grant from the Department of Natural Resources for lake and river improvements. The Lake and River Enhancement grants are designed to fund projects such as logjam removal, sediment removal, and invasive vegetation management.

Thirteen counties will share $950,000 in grant money to benefit 48 lakes, rivers, and streams. Among those, Griffy Lake in Monroe County is receiving $96,000 for a sediment removal project and Salt Creek in Brown County is receiving more than $34,000 for logjam removal.
