See what’s being done to improve our streams and better manage stormwater in the watershed.
The purple coneflower blossoms may be past their prime, but the root systems are hard at work on the edge of the Chagrin River at St. Christopher's By-The-River Church in Gates Mills Village. John Hata, a Senior at University School and a member of a Shaker Heights Boy Scout Troop decided to take on reclamation of the riverbank as his Eagle Scout project. The Church consulted with the Chagrin River Watershed Partners, Cuyahoga Soil and Water Conservation District, and the Village Engineer’s Office. CRWP helped develop a low cost do-it-yourself plan for the Church that they’ve already put into practice!

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.
