Blanchard River Floodplain Restoration

Putnam County 

This project will restore wetlands along the curves of the Blanchard River just west of the village of Ottawa.  Low earth berms will create a series of terraced wetlands which will form water depths of 0-18”.  Native plant communities will be restored, and additional vegetation will be planted to add onto a narrow riparian wooded corridor. 

Partners: Village of Ottawa, Maumee Watershed Conservancy District
