Forder Bridge Floodplain Reconnection

Paulding County | Maumee River Watershed

This project involves wetland restoration on a 54-acre parcel adjacent to the Maumee State Scenic River in Paulding County. Restoration actions include installing a series of passive treatment wetlands along an agricultural drainage, recontouring stream banks to reconnect the Maumee River to its floodplain and installing riffle grade control structures to reduce nearby streambank erosion. As a result of this project, water quality will be improved and wildlife habitat will be expanded.

Project size: 54 Acres
Partners: Black Swamp Conservancy
