Anxious wait for emerald residents as river gets deeper, says conservation groups

SANDUSKY, Ohio – For years, residents around Sandusky have wondered if their property is vulnerable to flooding.

But what they learned has prompted their questions to grow. The waters around the lake are rising, and local environmentalists, including Friends of Sandusky, fear the lake could become a breeding ground for invasive species.

While some communities are struggling to adapt to the changes, Sandusky residents who live downstream are wa강남출장안마tching with alarm. The lake is now one of the first places in Ohio to experience extreme flooding, said Dan Tippetts, the city’s director of recreation and environment.

“If this is true, as of now, we’re just sort of going to look at what comes next and do what we can in order to keep Sandusky Lake from being overrun,” Tippetts said. “If we can’t, I think we need to look at other places to live and try to figure out how to get people back there.”

This year, the Ohio Department of Natural Resources opened all recreation sites in Sandusky City and the Cleveland area of XO 카지노Sandusky City to water recreation for the first time since 2002, when the State Parks and Open Spaces Division opened them.

In 2016, the Sandusky Water Management Area opened three new recreation fa모나코 카지노cilities. A new outdoor swimming pond near the lake opened this week with a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 4:30 p.m.

“With new facilities like this, we were excited and excited for what would come, but that excitement has evaporated,” said Rick Farr of Friends of Sandusky. “We don’t need to be inundated by a large aquatic plant to sustain life.”
