GLIN==> Cuyahoga River Sediment Transport Model Workshop -- August 14, 2007



Contact: Kelvin Rogers, 330-963-1117, kelvin.rogers@epa.state.oh.us

Cuyahoga River Sediment Transport Model Workshop 
Date: Tuesday, August 14, 2007
Time: 9:00 am to 3:00 pm 
Location: Ohio EPA Twinsburg Office, 2110 East Aurora Road, Twinsburg, Ohio
44087

Since 2003, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Buffalo District, has been
working to develop a sediment modeling tool that could be used by local
stakeholders to minimize erosion and sediment delivered to the Cuyahoga
River and, subsequently, the Cleveland Harbor on Lake Erie. This
collaborative effort, made possible by funding under the Great Lakes
Tributary Modeling Program, is a joint initiative between the U.S. Army
Corps of Engineers (Great Lakes Region) and the Great Lakes states. Major
partners in this effort for the Cuyahoga River have included the Ohio EPA,
Cuyahoga River Remedial Action Plan (RAP), Northeast Ohio Regional Sewer
District, Cuyahoga County Planning Commission, Mittal Steel, Cuyahoga Soil &
Water Conservation District, and area universities.  

The Corps of Engineers will host a meeting on August 14, 2007, to present
the findings of this study. The meeting will be held at the Ohio EPA
Twinsburg Office, located at 2110 East Aurora Road, from 9:00 am - 3:00 pm
(lunch will be on your own). The meeting will also include a demonstration
of the model itself. Organizations interested in learning to use the model
are invited to attend this technical workshop.

The objective of the Great Lakes Tributary Modeling Program is to develop
tools for watershed planning that are usable and will be used by
stakeholders who make decisions about soil conservation and non-point
pollution prevention measures, and by other stakeholders who might support
these activities. By supporting state and local measures that will reduce
the loading of sediments and pollutants to tributaries, this work is helping
to reduce the need for-and costs of-navigation dredging, while promoting
actions to delist Great Lakes Areas of Concern (AOCs). 

Feel free to forward this meeting notice to others that may be interested.
We look forward to seeing you on the 14th!

The above meeting announcement is being forwarded to you by the Great Lakes
Commission as part of the Great Lakes Tributary Modeling Program. The Great
Lakes Commission provides technical and administrative support to the Corps
of Engineers in the implementation of this important initiative, as directed
by Section 516(e) of the Water Resources Development Act of 1996. The
Commission helps to facilitate the Corps' coordination with the Great Lakes
states and the Great Lakes Basin Program for Soil Erosion and Sediment
Control, a U.S. Department of Agriculture grant program for soil
conservation that is managed by the Commission.
