More than $35,000 awarded to Ohio watershed groups to support local water quality improvement efforts

On Oct. 20, 2016 Dominion and the nonprofit Western Reserve Land Conservancy awarded $35,025 in grant funding to sixteen Ohio watershed groups for marketing, promotions and outreach efforts as well as project-specific restoration or water quality improvement project expenses. The ceremony took place at the Land Conservancy’s Conservation Center in Moreland Hills, OH.

Through the support of Dominion, Western Reserve Land Conservancy launched the Watershed Mini Grant Program last year to serve organizations working to protect and improve land around rivers, lakes and streams throughout Ohio.

Mill Creek Watershed Partnership (MCWP) was awarded $1,125 to reestablish woody vegetation along the banks of Mill Creek in Maple Heights in order to stabilize and reinforce stream banks. Maple Heights Mayor Annette M. Blackwell accepted the award on behalf of MCWP.
