About this site

Thanks for helping us monitor this golf course restoration. Sitting as it does, just uphill from Tinkers Creek, Astorhurst is an important location for improving water quality in the Tinkers Creek watershed. Restoration work created a wetland uphill from the pond to store additional stormwater when it rains. The wetland and the pond below it both capture water flowing off of the hill above and from storm drains along Dunham Road. By capturing more stormwater, the restoration can help reduce downstream flooding while also improving water quality by filtering contaminants like salt from Dunham Road. Photos from this site will help us monitor the function of this restored wetland. You can also help monitor other sites: Bonnie Park Wetland Restoration, Bonnie Park Dam Removal, Brookside stormwater bioretention, Chagrin River near Jackson Field, Garfield Park pond, and Euclid Creek headwater restoration at Acacia Reservation. This site is not yet ADA accessible.
