Big Creek Stormwater Retrofit Ranking Project
Stormwater retrofits are a series of green structural stormwater practices designed to mitigate erosive flows, reduce pollutants, and promote conditions for improved aquatic habitat that are retrofitted into developed watersheds. They provide treatment in locations where practices previously did not exist or were ineffective.
This project builds on the work completed in the recently state-endorsed Big Creek Watershed Balanced Growth Plan by using data gathered for the four types of stormwater retrofits identified in the plan.
TetraTech Inc. is the consultant for project oversight and conceptual design work.
Initial funding for the project was made possible through grants from the Northeast Ohio Regional Sewer District, Freshwater Future and the Ohio Lake Erie Protection Fund.
A second phase of the Big Creek Watershed Stormwater Retrofit Ranking project was funded primarily through a grant from the Lake Erie Protection Fund (SG 456-13).
