An investigation of the Maumee Basin was conducted to determine the characteristics which would be necessary to conduct a meaningful demonstration and research project on a small watershed. The Black Creek Watershed in Allen County Indiana was selected for this project. An investigation of the Black Creek Area identified land treatment measures, which will significantly reduce the sediment contribution from this watershed to the Maumee River. Monitoring sites were selected within the watershed and a plan of investigation which will lead to a projection of results of the demonstration project to the basin was developed. Also developed were a series of scientific studies to aid in the understanding of the mechanisms involved in the treatment of the watershed. A work schedule for treatment was developed and specific areas of concern identified.
