City of South Euclid - Headwater Stream Assessment and Restoration Potential

In 2004, the Cleveland Metroparks surveyed headwater streams in the Euclid Creek Watershed looking for insects, salamanders and fish to assess the relative health of the stream. Headwater streams are small creeks and streams at the beginning / origin of the watershed (the small tributaries).

73 sites were inventoried to assess stream health and to identify stream segments in need of restoration. Sites were then analyzed to identify sites that should be prioritized for restoration. A report explaining the findings and the meaning of scores is included below. And each Watershed Council communities' maps are below.

City of South Euclid - Watersheds Map

Community-specific watershed maps were created for all Euclid Creek Watershed Council communities in 2014 for display and educational purposes. The Euclid Creek Watershed Council Public Involvement and Public Education Committee came up with the idea for this educational deliverable. And the maps were printed with Northeast Ohio Regional Sewer District grant funds through their Watershed Operating Support Grant.

City of South Euclid - Wetland Inventory, 2007

In 2006, Cuyahoga SWCD hired the Davey Resource Group to conduct a GIS mapping based Wetlands Inventory and Restoration Assessment for Cuyahoga County through a Great Lakes Commission grant.

The final product was a map and inventory list of wetland sites greater than 0.22 acres in size. Since wetlands are so scarce statewide and in Cuyahoga County, efforts to protect these last remaining wetlands is critical.

Cleveland Metroparks - Watershed Volunteer Program

While we would love for you to become involved with our local watershed initiatives through Friends of Euclid Creek and the Rocky River Watershed Council, a great resource for watershed training and stewardship is the Cleveland Metroparks Watershed Volunteer Program.

Established in 2012, the Watershed Volunteer Program (WVP) is an effort to engage citizens in an array of active management projects to improve watershed conditions. WVP promotes stewardship through learning opportunities, restoration projects, and monitoring activities. For more information, go to their website here.
