The initial project design sought to restore 70 feet of eroded stream channel and create a wetland swale to receive 26,200 gallons of stormwater from North Park Blvd. After plan reviews with the City of Cleveland Heights and the project funder, the Northeast Ohio Regional Sewer District (NEORSD), our consulting team, River Works, lined the stream with new cobles and planted the wetland swale with water-loving plants.
