Wetland Mitigation  
 

Letha House

The Letha House mitigation site is located in Medina County, Ohio within the approximate 88-acre park known as Letha House Park, which contains a variety of habitats including Little Sweetley Creek, a coldwater habitat tributary to the Black River, wetlands, hardwood forest and meadow areas.  The mitigation wetland will be approximately 30 acres, with restoration including emergent herbaceous and scrub-shrub habitats.  Medina County Park District will manage the restored wetlands as park lands used for environmental education, eventually linking the Letha House mitigation site to the park system’s miles of trails, visitation areas and nature centers.  All restored wetlands will be category 2 and 3 wetlands, managed and maintained as wetlands in perpetuity.

Subject to the approval of the regulatory agencies, this site is an appropriate location for mitigation for wetland impacts to category 2 or 3 wetlands in the same (HUC#04110001, Black-Rocky River) or adjacent watersheds (HUC#04100012, Huron-Vermilion River, HUC #04110002, Cuyahoga River), and for impacts to category 1 wetlands and for impacts to 3 acres or less of category 2 isolated wetlands anywhere within the boundaries of the Buffalo District, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.
