The Chagrin River Watershed Partners is a nonprofit organization serving municipalities and park systems impacted by the Chagrin River. CRWP helps communities to better manage the problems of erosion and flooding through sustainable plans that benefit both the environment and community development.

CRWP provides technical assistance to its members and develops cost effective, prevention-focused solutions to minimize new and address current natural resource management problems as communities grow.  

A high quality natural resource, the Chagrin River is increasingly impacted by urban and suburban development that increases flooding, erosion and water quality problems.  The CRWP was formed in 1996 as communities were faced with rising infrastructure costs as a result of these impacts. The organization started with 16 member cities, villages, townships, counties and park districts and now serves 34 members, representing 91% of the Chagrin River watershed.
