Sanford Agricultural Drainage Treatment Train

Erie County | Sandusky Bay Watershed | Coastal

This project will increase water retention and treatment during high and low flow periods. An extended path provided by the wetland will increase filtering of sediments when the water is low.  During high flow periods, the marsh will increase retention time to aid in water quality improvement.  A portion of Sanford Ditch will be made into an overwide channel, allowing for more vegetation to grow and pre-treat nutrients before they enter the wetland and ultimately Sandusky Bay. 

Project size: 3 Acres
Partners: Erie Soil & Water Conservation District
