Created 23.92 acres of self-sustaining emergent/shrub-shrub/forested wetlands by restoring a historic, substantially degraded wetland that had been in agricultural production for more than 50 years in the River Raisin Banking Watershed. Restoration of this site maximizes the benefits to the River Raisin Watershed and ultimately Lake Erie by addressing several water impairments identified in the EPA approved River Raisin Watershed Management Plan. These include altered hydrology, sediments, excess nutrients, water temperature and pollutants which are addressed through the restoration of wetlands, prevention and regulation of spreading of non-native species, and improved flood storage by reducing stream peak flows during storm events. In addition installation of low berms hold water on-site creating natural wetland conditions.
