The Cincinnati Park Board in partnership with the Metropolitan Sewer District of Greater Cincinnati (MSD) and the Hamilton County Soil & Water Conservation District, undertook a stream restoration project in Ault Park. The project “day – lighted” collected storm water that previously was routed underground in the combined storm water and sewer line. Now storm water becomes an asset and means a constantly running, natural run-off Valley Trail stream.
The stream bed was restored with pools and cascades that will minimize erosion while also providing a pleasant “running water” environment. More information about the project can be found at Project Groundwork.
