The city of Storm Lake is getting a federal grant to start a long-term clean-up project on the lake for which the city is named. Storm Lake City Administrator John Call says the 350-thousand dollar grant will get things started.Call says they’d eventually like to dredge 14-hundred acres of Storm Lake to lower the depth and improve the water quality, which Call says will make Storm Lake a tourist destination. Call says the federal grant will by no way cover the entire cost of the project, but it will be a big boost for the decade-long project.Call says state funds have already been set aside to launch the project.The state is currently dredging 180 acres of Storm Lake. And Call says there’s a local commitment, too, but it’ll take much more than what they’ve rounded up so far.
