Grant Will Help Restore Area Around Big Creek Lake

MOBILE COUNTY -

A large federal grant will be used to help protect Mobile County's fresh water supply.

The County Commission voted to approve the $1 million grant this week.

It will go toward rebuilding wetlands around Big Creek Lake, which has been overrun with foreign vegetation.

"It will be able to purify the area in terms of runoff so the runoff will improve the water quality in this area," said Commissioner Connie Hudson.
