UT Cade Wetland and Stream Restoration

Partners: University of Toledo Foundation

The goal of this project is to restore existing stream channels that flow to the Ottawa River in Lucas County. The University of Toledo’s CADE project has recognized a need to stabilize the quickly eroding banks of the many incised channels that flow through their project area. By installing stream enhancement structures and excavating and repairing eroding banks, the team hopes to prevent further erosion, improve hydraulic connectivity to the adjacent floodplains, and increase the efficiency of nearby wetlands and riparian areas.
