Brooks Park Wetland Creation & Water Quality Initiative

Fairfield County | Licking River Watershed | Inland Eastern Ohio

The Buckeye Lake State Park Brooks Park project will reduce nutrients and pollutants entering Buckeye Lake via Murphy’s Run through the creation of new wetlands at Brooks Park. The project will accomplish this goal through habitat improvement along Murphy’s Run and establishing connectivity with an off-channel wetland. Stream habitat improvements and creation of wetlands will lead to increased ecological function including nutrient, sediment, and pollutant removal.

Project size: 1.5 Linear Acres
Partner: ODNR Division of Parks & Watercraft
