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
