Chippewa Lake Wetland Restoration

Medina County | Chippewa Creek Watershed (Ohio River Basin) | Inland NE Ohio

At more than 300-acres, Chippewa Lake is Ohio’s largest glacial lake, making it ecologically and culturally significant. In recent years, the lake has been plagued by harmful algal blooms. This project will restore several wetlands and a stream channel to intercept nutrients from nearby agricultural drainage areas, and create wetland habitat within the footprint of a former amusement park along the shore of Chippewa Lake. 

Project size: 50 Acres
Project site type: Public
Partners: Medina County Parks
