Hiram College and the James H. Barrow Biological Field Station have been partnering with the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency (OEPA) and the Western Reserve Land Conservancy in developing plans for protecting and restoring the water quality of the  ecosystem including and surrounding two local streams.  The proposed plan is now being made available to the public for comment.
