Public Access

The banks of streams are in most cases -
private property.

The Chippewa Watershed Subdistrict has easement rights to operate and maintain
the banks and berm roads along the Flood Control Project.

These easement rights allow Chippewa Subdistrict employees access to the banks and to private property.

It is unlawful for the public to access
private property unless specific permission has been received from the property owner.

Public access is available at Hubbard Valley Park, one of our flood control dams - Dam III-A, along with Medina County Park amenities.
