"A water cleansing "Treatment Train" into Grand Lake St. Marys."
"To fund the purchase and installation of a "treatment train" to be placed in a major lake tributary replicating a natural, cleansing wetland. A treatment train consists of a sediment collector that intercepts nutrient laden silt before it enters the lake; an aeration device that introduces dissolved oxygen into the entire water column; a floating wetland whose roots absorb nutrients suspended in the water and a rock pier that will direct the flow of water through these devices. The goal of the Commission to install a treatment train on every tributary entering the lake thus removing phosphorus and other detrimental nutrients that feed toxic blue green algae. To dredge the mouths of the incoming tributaries creating islands and removing nutrient laden silt already in the lake bottom." [Pepsi Refresh Project]
