The Ohio Environmental Education Fund provided resources for a project known as "Protecting Olentangy Riparian Corridors." It seeks to improve mapping of riparian areas within the OEPA's special Olentangy Watershed permit area (Ohio EPA Permit OHCO00001), educating local jurisdictions on the best ways to encourage best use practices within their authority areas, and helping landowners know how to manage the riparian areas on their land.
