Making The Most Of Muck In The Cuyahoga River03:17

This article is more than 3 years old.

Twice a year, a six-mile stretch of the Cuyahoga River has enough sediment dredged out of it to fill about 18,000 dump trucks. This allows shipping traffic to continue between Lake Erie and Cleveland’s industrial sectors.

But earlier this year, Ohio governor John Kasich signed an executive order prohibiting open lake dumping of dredged material.

From the Here & Now Contributors Network, WCPN's Brian Bull reports on alternative efforts to make use of all that muck.
