Hull and another consultant teamed to perform targeted identification and conceptual restoration plans for wetland and stream sites located throughout the Swan Creek and Ottawa River watersheds in northwest Ohio.
The objective was to focus on surface water restoration to improve water quality.
Planning, field work, modeling, design, and reporting work were split equally between the two firms, with Hull taking the lead on stream aquatic life and habitat assessments, stream restoration design, and GIS modeling.
Hull compiled a comprehensive GIS database of relevant information and used these data in a Hull-designed GIS model to identify subsets of all possible potential restoration sites that best met certain criteria.
Hull’s varied Swan Creek/Ottawa River Projects involved wetlands design (preliminary), hydraulic modeling, habitat restoration, construction management, creating and using critical path method schedules, and integrating critical path method schedules as a project management resource.
