In 2004, the Cleveland Metroparks surveyed headwater streams in the Euclid Creek Watershed looking for insects, salamanders and fish to assess the relative health of the stream. Headwater streams are small creeks and streams at the beginning / origin of the watershed (the small tributaries).
73 sites were inventoried to assess stream health and to identify stream segments in need of restoration. Sites were then analyzed to identify sites that should be prioritized for restoration. A report explaining the findings and the meaning of scores is included below. And each Watershed Council communities' maps are below.
