Description
Scope/Content: Abstract: The main goals of this project include restored fish passage, improved fish in-stream habitat, reduced channel and bank erosion, and improved water quality. Causes and sources of impairments have been documented in the Rocky River TMDL Report, the Rocky River Watershed Action Plan and Ohio EPA's 2010 Integrated Report. Baldwin Creek is located within an urbanized region of Cuyahoga County, Ohio. As a result of this urbanized state, sections of Baldwin Creek have been modified or altered the past 100 years that have prohibited natural fish passage to thrive and limits its biological attainment. The project proposes to remove the one intact dam and two partially intact dams that serve as barriers to fish passage in Baldwin Creek, and that sever populations of the state-threatened Bigmouth Shiner (Notropis dorsalis) in Baldwin Creek and the East Branch of the Rocky River. Channel stabilization up- and downstream of the dam sites and aquatic habitat enhancement will also be conducted as part of the project. As identified in the Rocky River TMDL Report and the Rocky River Watershed Action Plan, the removal of these structures and associated in-stream habitat restoration will restore the fish community to WWH standards in the lower 0.9 miles of Baldwin Creek.
