Upper Blanchard River Watershed Project

Wyandot County 

This project is being designed to improve water quality in the Blanchard River watershed.  Several private-lands and/or CREP wetland projects will work together in a local drainage network.  A drainage ditch will be rerouted into a Lake Erie CREP wetland to facilitate nutrient reduction.  This project will include a new water control structure on an existing wetland, and will  facilitate filtering of agricultural runoff.

Project Size: 371 acres filtered; 5 acre ditch/wetland

Partner: Wyandot SWCD
