VERMILION, Ohio - Plans are being made to dredge a Lake Erie harbor that took on tons of silt during Superstorm Sandy last year.
The Ohio Department of Natural Resources says dredging at Vermilion Harbor will take about a month.
Low water levels in recent years and the effects of Sandy last October have added up to trouble for boaters at the harbor west of Cleveland.
Marina owners tell The Chronicle-Telegram newspaper in Elyria that the dredging is a relief for them and boaters.
The harbor master in Vermilion says more boats have gotten stuck there in the last two years than the past 25.
