Project Title: Green Stabilization of Riparian Area along the Chagrin River in Hunting Valley Project Location: Hunting Valley, Cuyahoga County
Watershed: Chagrin River
Project Summary: $137,500 in Surface Water Improvement Fund (SWIF) grant funding is recommended to install vegetative rip-rap to restore vegetation and to stabilize 400 linear feet of severely eroding streambank on the Chagrin River in Hunting Valley, Ohio. The project will use a green practice, vegetative rip-rap in an area that has been a perennial erosion problem. The project site is highly visible and should provide an excellent opporty to serve as a demonstration of this particular type of installation. The Chagrin River Watershed Partners, the local watershed group has recommended this practice to a number of landowners as an alternative to hard engineering approaches such as rip-rap and gabion baskets. Having an example installed within the river valley will provide valuable opportunities to demonstrate green practices to landowners. In addition to the streambank stabilization activity, this project will also conduct at tleast one workshop for village residents on ―Green Stabilization Practices‖ and a variety of other education and outreach activities. This project is also being implemented consistent with the recommendations in the state endorsed Chagrin River Watershed Action Plan. It is also generally consistent with findings and recommendations within the Chagrin River Total Maximum Daily Load study completed by Ohio EPA and approved by US EPA. Project Deliverables: Restoration of approximately 400 linear feet of currently eroding streambank using bio-engineering (green) vegetative rip-rap practices. Planting and restoring 3/10ths of an acre with native species of trees and shrubs following stabilization of the streambank.

Conduct a comprehensive education and outreach program including the development and distribution of 1 project-specific fact sheet, issuing 1 press release, conducting one streambank stabilization workshop for area landowners, and preparing and publishing at least one project-specific article for the Chagrin River Watershed Partners newsletter.

Environmental Results: Successful completion of this project is expected to considerably reduce sediment loadings into the Chagrin State Scenic River and to stabilize 400 linear feet of severely eroding stream bank using ―green‖ stabilization and engineering practices.
