Shor Park Stream Restoration

On July 14, staff from Clermont SWCD, the Clermont County Park District and the Office of Environmental Quality helped install hand-placed log structures in Avey’s Run, a stream that traverses Shor Park in Union Township. The log structures, a technique pioneered by Sustainable Streams in Louisville KY, are intended to build habitat diversity, deflect flow and capture organic material to help protect eroding banks. The hand-placed log structures are part of a larger stream restoration plan that includes invasive species removal, the construction of pocket wetlands, and replacing a section of storm sewer with new stream channel. The entire project is scheduled to be completed by next April.
