Maslowski Beach Master Plan and Green Infrastructure Improvements:

The City of Ashland has been awarded an EPA Grant for $175,000 to improve water quality at Maslowski Beach by using green infrastructure. This grant award does not require a match; EPA through GLRI Funding is paying for the entirety of the project.

Through this grant opportunity, the City of Ashland will seek to develop a plan for Maslowski Beach that allows for the successful integration of green infrastructure practices designed to improve water quality and reduce beach advisories and closures.  It is hoped that green infrastructure measures will ultimately allow for a safer, cleaner and healthier Lake Superior experience. By improving the beach water quality, we ultimately create a healthy beach, which will have a positive economic impact to the community.
