Healing Lake Erie with in-stream sediment collectors

One of the major problems for Lake Erie is the runoff that happens when there is a heavy rain. The soil runs off the fields and yards, into the streams and rivers, and out to the lake, carrying with it soil and nutrients, some of which also contribute to algae blooms. The farmer loses valuable topsoil and nutrients. The streams and lake fill with silt, damaging fish and wildlife habitat and necessitating dredging that further damages stream and lake beds and shorelines.
