Toledo Botanical Garden is a 60 acre public park located in Toledo, Ohio. TGC engineered a stream restoration and dam removal project to prevent soil erosion and sediment deposit and to improve water quality. A natural tributary to the Maumee River was created by removing two concrete low-head dams. TGC also replaced two in-line, sediment laden ponds with an off-line pond and 1,250 lineal feet of restored stream. The stream was designed with Natural Channel Design methods to engage the floodplain and naturally transport sediment.
The Camp Ravenna project was challenging and required hydrologic and hydraulic modeling to design and plan the decommissioning of an existing in line dam.
