Check this out! Remember the photos of the bioretention cell at the Lake County Buildings and Grounds building that we shared the other day? Well take a look at it during a rain event! The plants and soil will help filter pollution from the water and absorb the stormwater into the ground. #LoveYourLakeErie

The Monarch butterflies 🦋 that you are seeing now are likely the "super generation" that will make the 3,000 mile migration south to the overwintering grounds in Mexico.

These specially-adapted monarchs fly up to 50 miles per day during this migration, sometimes catching rides on thermal currents a mile high in the sky!

#DYK Each year, the "super generation" monarchs migrate to the same forests in central Mexico without ever having been there before themselves! Scientists believe that the Earth's magnetic force and the position of the sun play a role but much is still to be learned about this mysterious and miraculous journey.

Follow the monarch migration at journeynorth.org.

Each year, ODOT spends an average of 152,890 hours picking up litter across the state of Ohio. That’s equivalent to 17.5 years of work.

Every. Single. Year.

Basically, in the time it takes us to pick up litter each year, we could raise a kid from birth to its HS graduation!

It’s unfortunate when pollution streams in to ruin a beautiful view, but most importantly the water quality of Lake Erie. Remember only rain down the storm drain! Do your part to keep Lake Erie and our streams clean. Report any suspicious looking colors or odors that you may come across in our waterways to the Lake County General Health District (440)350-2543 or https://www.lcghd.org/nuisance-complaint-thank-you/

General information

Pollution from stormwater is one of the main threats to our lakes and rivers. Therefore, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) implemented a two-phased stormwater management program to improve water quality. Many of the communities within Lake County are required to implement a stormwater management program. This program helps eliminate and reduce pollutants in stormwater entering the storm sewers and ditches in your community. The Lake County Stormwater Management Department (LCSMD) assists communities with regulatory compliance of their program.
