DEETZ NATURE PRESERVE: Bullerman Ditch Subwatershed Project Area October 2017, along Rodenbeck Drain and the Maumee River, adding:

  • 409 trees, 21 native species : Riparian Buffer Initiative: TREES FOR ALL SITES
  • 1,105 linear feet of riparian buffer X 25 feet wide = .573 acre of added forest along one of the three most critical areas of the Upper Maumee River’s sub-watersheds due to: lack of riparian buffers, urban land-uses, CSO’s and septic tank failures.
  • 42 different people logged over 511 volunteer hours to remove invasive species and plant trees

 

April 2016 we had added 380 trees to this sub-watershed with the help of 268 volunteers that have logged 700 hours to remove invasive species and plant trees. When Bullerman Subwatershed projects are completed, Save Maumee will have installed 2,000 linear feet of natural space that will yield 1.147 acres of increased riparian buffer that will:
*Add 760 trees to capture 44,848 gallons per year (59 gallons/tree)
*Nitrogen load reduction for this sub-watershed will yield 320 lbs/year
*Phosphorus load reduction will yield 190 lbs/year
*Sediment load reduction will yield 190 tons / year
