Dusseau Wetland/Lakeplain Prairie Restoration
This project supports the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative and the Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement, pursuant to Public Law 111-88. Specifically, this project will restore 38 acres of emergent wetland and 28 acres of globally rare lakeplain prairie. Work will involve (a) refurbishing and extending low level berms; (b) rerouting an agricultural drainage ditch from its existing discharge to Lake Erie into a watercourse being developed within the site; and (c) installing a pump to emulate natural hydrological patterns to control invasive species and improve native wetland plant and wildlife habitat. The project will improve physical, chemical, and biological processes and ecosystem functions and maintain or improve the conditions of native fish and wildlife.
