Project Title: Eastlake Service Yard Bio-retention Demonstration
Project Location: City of Eastlake
Watershed: Chagrin River
Project Summary: $64,479 in Surface Water Improvement Fund (SWIF) grant funding is awarded to the city of Eastlake to install 2 bio-retention cells to treat and reduce runoff from the City of Eastlake’s Service Yard. The city will install 2 bio-retention cells totaling 2,700 square feet in areas where there are currently no stormwater management controls in place. This project will serve to demonstrate to local developers, residents and municipal and township service garages in the Lake and surrounding counties that innovative stormwater retrofits can easily be incorporated into service yards and existing parking areas. The project will be supported by education and outreach activities such as the installation of a sign about the project at the entrance and public recycling areas, developing and distributing a project-specific brochure, a webpage addition and a project specific newsletter article in the city’s newsletter.
This project is 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: Installation of 2,700 square feet of bio-retention cells within the city of Eastlake’s Service Yard. Conduct education and outreach activities including the development and installation of 2 project specific signs, creation and distribution of a project-specific pamphlet, 1 newsletter articles and a project-specific addition to the city’s website. Additionally, 1 project-specific presentation will also be made to the Board of the Chagrin River Watershed Partners, the city of Eastlake City Council and to the Lake County Mayors and City Managers Association.

Environmental Results: Successful completion of this project will passively treat stormwater drainage, reduce nonpoint source pollution loadings to the Chagrin River and demonstrate alternative methods of stormwater management for area developers and local officials.
