    • 2021-09 Morgan St. Reservoir & Wetland: The Morgan Street Reservoir and Wetland Project is located at 199 Morgan Street in Oberlin. The 12.15 acre site currently includes two Class II dams regulated by the Ohio Department of Natural Resources. The reservoirs were built about 100 years ago to support the City’s Municipal Water Service.  The project will lower the water level of Reservoir 1 (the east reservoir) approximately 18 inches and convert Reservoir 2 (the west reservoir) into a constructed wetland. Portions of the Reservoir 1 embankment will also be lowered to achieve exempt status from ODNR requirements. A new outlet control structure will be installed for Reservoir 1. The estimated storage volume for Reservoir 1 will be reduced from approximately 48-acre feet to 42-acre feet. A portion of the Reservoir 2 southern embankment will be removed, and the bottom will be raised. A new outlet structure for the constructed wetland will control flows. A toe drain will be installed along the west slope of the constructed wetland. The estimated storage volume for Reservoir 2 will be reduced from approximately 25 acre-feet to 5-acre feet. A boardwalk, kiosk, bench, and several wood stair sections will be installed. The constructed wetland will be revegetated throughout with trees, shrubs and seeding. The trails throughout the site will either be re-constructed or top-dressed.
