Plum Creek (Brunswick) Stakeholder Meeting

Cuyahoga SWCD and Rocky River Watershed Council Seeking Resident Input about the Rocky River?s Plum Creek SubwatershedCuyahoga SWCD has been awarded a $13,545 Coastal Management Assistance Grant from the Ohio Department of Natural Resources to develop Protection and Restoration Plans for the Plum Creek (near Brunswick) and Upper East Branch watersheds ? both tributaries to the Rocky River. In order to develop the subwatershed protection and restoration plans, Cuyahoga SWCD and the Rocky River Watershed Council will perform water quality monitoring and gather input and suggestions from the communities and residents of the Plum Creek watershed, in order to target areas for protection and/or restoration (such as area with streambank erosion or other known water quality issues). To that end, a stakeholder meeting has been scheduled for November 21 at 6:30 PM at the Brunswick Branch of the Medina County District Library, located at 3649 Center Rd. in Brunswick. Plum Creek is a tributary to the West Branch of the Rocky River that drains 12.8 square miles, including portions of Brunswick, Brunswick Hills Township, Hinckley Township, Medina Township and Granger Township. According to the Ohio EPA, Plum Creek is impaired by nitrogen loading, excessive sedimentation and habitat modification caused by non-point sources such as urban runoff.
