Welcome to Hancock SWCD


Ottawa Creek Maintenance Project

Hancock Soil & Water is currently in the process of performing a routine log jam and dead/leaning tree removal on Ottawa Creek. Due to staffing changes in our office, letters notifying landowners of the project were not sent out. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused. Currently, we are working in the area of Township Road 38 and are moving north, towards the Blanchard River. Please share this information with anyone that might be affected by the project, if there should be any questions or concerns, please contact Tyler Koenig at Hancock SWCD at 419-422-6569 ext.105.
