Blanchard River Stream Enhancement Project - Maintenance Update

This extensive cleaning of the Blanchard River in Hardin, Hancock and Putnam counties started November 15, 2013 and is scheduled for completion by April 15, 2015. The work crew has now finished in Putnam, Hancock and Hardin Counties. The crew will now return to Hancock County and work on any log jams missed the first time and downed trees reported by landowners.

Lye Creek Watershed Grant - **UPDATE** - We have expended all funds in this grant due to the great conservation efforts of landowners and farmers! We do have a waiting list for those who would still like to participate if more funding becomes available. The grant was for landowners and farmers who own property or farm property in the Lye Creek watershed. Several practices were available that will help reduce sediment and phosphorus load and runoff volume to Lye Creek, the Blanchard River and ultimately the Western Basin of Lake Erie. Thank you for the great conservation efforts and sign-up!
