Mapleview Ditch Nears Completion


The long planned storm water ditch along the southern border of Vermilion with Brownhelm Township is near completion, according to Mayor Forthofer.

“Once finished this channel will relieve flooding in the city and township,” stated the mayor.

“Initiated by the Lorain County Engineer, this construction will be paid for by the County Storm Water Fund and community assessments,” said Mayor Forthofer.

The ditch runs parallel to Rolling Meadows off West River.
