See what’s being done to improve our streams and better manage stormwater in the watershed.
Newbury Township plans to build a Veterans’ Memorial Park on the southwest corner of Route 87 and Auburn Road. The Township has completed a conceptual plan for the project that includes a gazebo, military vehicle display, additional trees and shrubs, walkways, wooded walking paths, and a new parking area. CRWP is assisting the Township with an application to receive funding from the Ohio EPA to incorporate permeable pavement and bioretention into the park to better manage stormwater.
The City of Aurora will restore a portion of the Aurora Branch of the Chagrin River on the recently acquired former Aurora Golf Club.
You may be eligible for a FREE rain garden kit, rain barrel, or shade tree! CRWP is partnering with Eastlake, Mentor, and Willoughby through a Great Lakes Restoration Initiative grant to give residents in the Newell/Ward Creek watershed an opportunity to reduce the amount of stormwater runoff that ends up in our streams by redirecting downspout flow to rain gardens, rain barrels or planting a shade tree. These are easy options for residents to help intercept and infiltrate stormwater in their own yards.
