Log Description

This 29 acre project is examining potential designs for reconnection and reestablishing flow through the historic Miami and Erie Canal to improve water quality along the Maumee River. If deemed feasible, flow would be re-established through the six miles of canal downstream of Independence Dam State Park and incorporate wetland habitat features. The project has the added potential to restore a cultural resource and provide recreational opportunities.
