When Franklin County SWCD received an Ohio EPA grant to construct a demonstration 2-stage drainageway, they contacted their DSWR area conservation engineer to assist them with design and construction of the project.
Under quick timeframes in the summer of 2010, the site was surveyed with the assistance of NRCS and engineering plans were developed and construction commenced.
Along with the district technician, the Division’s conservation engineer was also able to provide construction layout for the project, monitor construction for field changes, and provide some post-construction monitoring.
This project consisted of excavating the floodplain to restore connection to the incised channel. As part of construction, a small inset channel was created to carry normal flow.
