Headwater Streets is a financial incentive program for residents in the Abram Creek and Baldwin Creek subwatersheds of the Rocky River. This roughly includes all of Middleburg Heights and portions of Berea, Brook Park, Cleveland, North Royalton, Parma and Strongsville (see map). Funded by a grant from the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation's Sustain Our Great Lakes program, the goal of the project is to reduce storm water pollution in the target areas.
Financial Incentives for Residents include a 50% rebate on Rain Barrels, Rain Gardens and Soil Testing, potentially totaling hundreds of dollars in savings. The 50% rebate is available for Rain Barrels or Rain Gardens installed or Soil Testing Performed until May 31, 2012.
