Lower Euclid Creek Greenway Plan, 2007

The Lower Euclid Creek Plan looks at opportunities to enhance Euclid Creek in Cleveland and Euclid, the most densely populated cities of the watershed. The Cuyahoga Soil & Water Conservation District worked with a Community Advisory Committee and URS Consulting Team to look at opportunities to enhance Euclid Creek in this area, and were impressed with the hidden assets and potential we found for the creek. Restoration of coastal wetlands, fish passage, land conservation, storm water management, and potential greenspace linkages from the Metroparks Euclid Creek Reservation to Lake Erie are some of the recommendations of the Lower Euclid Creek Greenway Plan. The Plan identifies specific projects that will enhance Euclid Creek and bring the Creek back into the community as an amenity. The project was funded in part by ODNR’s Coastal Management Grant Program.

Mayfield Village - 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.

Village of Mayfield - 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.

Stream Assessment report completed in 2009 (add link here later).

Village of Mayfield - 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.
