CEDAR LAKE | A grant from the Indiana Department of Natural Resources means that work along the Sleepy Hollow Ditch will continue.

Cedar Lake Town Manager Ian Nicolini said the $60,000 DNR Lakes and Rivers Enhancement grant will go toward flood control and water quality efforts along the ditch in the area between 142nd Avenue and the lake. The grant was obtained with help from the Cedar Lake Enhancement Association.

The town heard from residents on 142nd Avenue several years ago about flooding problems along Sleepy Hollow Ditch. A similar grant was then obtained and put toward bank stabilization efforts in the area of the ditch north of 142nd. Work from the new grant will address the issues along the ditch south of that area.

The Lakes and Rivers Enhancement funding is an in-kind grant, meaning Cedar Lake will provide a match to the grant via the labor it provides. The town's public works employees will work on the project.
