WORTHINGTON – The E.O. Olson Trust Board of Directors has designated funds toward water quality of Lake Okabena, putting aside $9,000 toward making a positive impact on the lake.
A third of the money will be spent on purchasing floating islands for Sunset Bay. The islands are made from recycled materials and serve as a base for grasses, sedges and flowers that feed off of nutrients in the water. In turn, fish feed off the underwater roots of the plants.
