The Oregon Flood Relief and Erosion Control Project (OFRECP) was constructed in 2013 – 2015 along the west side of Wynn Road and the south side of Cedar Point Road in Oregon. The project relocated Amolsch Driftmeyer Ditch around the BP Refinery and combined it with two other drainage systems, Johlin Ditch and Heckman Ditch. The project also filled in the former Heckman Ditch alignment along the west side of Wynn Road, which was causing road failures due to erosion. Because the project relocated and filled existing ditches, mitigation of these areas was required by Section 404 and 401 of the Clean Water Act. The Army Corp of Engineers and Ohio EPA are responsible for governing these permits.
Urban runoff is a term used to describe the runoff that occurs during rain events in areas that have a high concentration of impervious surfaces, such as asphalt roadways, parking areas, sidewalks, and rooftops. Urban runoff typically contains contaminants such as sediment, nutrients, hydrocarbons, metals, and bacteria from a variety of sources within the watershed. To combat runoff contaminants, the City of Oregon has constructed the Urban Runoff Capture and Otter Creek Restoration Project. This project is located at the western end of Eastmoreland Blvd, west of Wheeling Street. Construction began in Fall of 2019 and was completed in Summer of 2020. By capturing and treating urban runoff, this project will benefit Otter Creek and the Western Basin of Lake Erie. The City of Oregon was successful in obtaining a $499,997 Great Lakes Restoration Initiative (GLRI) grant from the US EPA for design and construction.
