Ohio and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers have settled a lawsuit over dredging in the Cuyahoga River.
The state and the federal agency have fought for years over how to handle sediment scooped from the river. The Army Corps wanted to dump it out into Lake Erie, but the state said that was unsafe.
Under the settlement, the Army Corps will bear the cost of disposing of sediment dredged in 2016 and 2017. That material was placed in confined disposal facilities, not in the lake.
The settlement was filed Wednesday in federal court in Cleveland.
