Funds have been awarded through the Ohio EPA's Water Resource Restoration Sponsor Program (WRRSP) for the restoration of Healey Creek in Brunswick's Venus Park. The $390,800 project will improve aquatic habitat in Healey Creek by creating a new floodplain adjacent to the creek. The project will also reduce downstream delivery of sediment from streambank erosion, and provide flood storage in the headwaters of Healey Creek. This funding is made possible through the sponsorship of the Northeast Ohio Regional Sewer District. Additional project partners include the City of Brunswick, Cuyahoga SWCD and the Rocky River Watershed Council.
