Burntwood-Langenkamp Wetland Conservation Area

Mercer County | Coldwater Creek Watershed | Inland Western Ohio

The Burntwood-Langenkamp Wetland Conservation Area is the fourth treatment train associated with nutrient reduction efforts at Grand Lake St. Marys. The 89-acre project broke ground in fall 2021 and was completed in fall 2022. The Lake Facilities Authority purchased property in Butler Township with Clean Ohio grant funding. Following acquisition, the H2Ohio program funded construction of a passive wetland treatment train featuring three created wetlands, several acres of planted trees, and a large buffer area of planted grasses/forbs.

Project size: 90 Acres

Partner: Division of Parks & Watercraft and Lake Facilities Authority
