Mill Creek Watershed Partnership
The Mill Creek Watershed Partnership is a community-based partnership of citizens, businesses, governments, agencies, and community groups dedicated to working together for the improvement of the Mill Creek Watershed.
Mill Creek is a large direct tributary to the Cuyahoga River and its headwaters begin in the City of Beachwood; it then makes a windy course through the Village of Highland Hills, Shaker Heights, Maple Heights, North Randall, Warrensville Heights, Cleveland, Garfield Heights, Cuyahoga Heights and Valley View.
Through a partnership with West Creek Conservancy, the Partnership has been able to concentrate efforts to implement stream/wetland/land restoration projects, stormwater control initiatives, and other land-restoration based developments; additionally, the Partnership is initiating policy change to protect riparian areas, sensitive wetlands and forestland. The Partnership has engaged a wide net of partners to help restore the watershed and implement safe public access to these great natural areas.
