A five-year plan to help clean up Grand Lake St Marys is nearly ready to be sent to state officials.

The Lake Restoration Group announced Saturday that they are almost ready to send the plans to state directors for approval and hopefully funds in the future.  The five-year plan focuses on dredging, removing carp from the lake and monitoring the water quality, plus, adding more treatment trains and keeping an eye on the treatment trains that are already installed.

"Improving existing treatment trains and identify how the results are a positive impact in the lake at this point in time; we've seen improvements especially in the Coldwater and Prairie Creek treatment trains, there have been improvements in the water quality and we're researching that as we speak - we'll have a report on that probably in the next 30 to 60 days," said Thomas Knapke, chairman of the Lake Restoration Group.

After they submit their plan, the group is expecting to hear back from the state within a few months.
