Northeast Ohio Regional Sewer District crews lowered the 345,000-pound head of a tunnel boring machine into the entrance of the Euclid Creek Tunnel, 200 feet below the surface in Bratenahl. The machine will begin cutting the sewer tunnel this summer, and is scheduled to complete the 18,000-foot long tunnel in 2014. When complete, it will be able to store 52 million gallons of combined sewage.

The Northeast Ohio Regional Sewer District held a groundbreaking ceremony on Wednesday for the Euclid Creek Tunnel. Construction of the $197 million project, designed to reduce combined sewer overflows, is scheduled to begin this month and continue for four years.

The Ohio Department of Natural Resources and the Western Reserve Land Conservancy announced the completion of the Lake Erie Coastal and Riparian Forest Preserve, a 19.5-acre bird sanctuary in Bratenahl.

The Western Reserve Land Conservancy reached a deal to purchase an eight acre forest along the Lake Erie coast in Bratenahl. The group has secured about $1 million from in grants and donations, and the mature forest will be preserved as a bird habitat if they can raise an additional $718,000.

The Ohio Department of Natural Resources was awarded $1.014 million by NOAA for the purchase of two properties in Bratenahl totaling 19.5 acres. The Lake Erie Coastal and Riparian Forest Preserve, a partnership between the Village of Bratenahl and the Western Reserve Land Conservancy, will include mature forest, a riparian corridor, and the 100-year floodplain of Dugway Creek. Acquisition of the land will cost $2.2 million.
