Unlike your furnace or dishwasher, you probably didn't get an Owner's Manual for the stream on your property when you bought your house. (But if you did, I'd love to see it!) Filled with general operating instructions and fixes for common problems, owner's manuals provide the operating instructions we need to keep our household appliances in good working order.

But what about our streams? How do we know how to keep them functioning properly and healthy? What can we do to fix minor streambank erosion, debris or sediment problems? What about major problems? What are some preventative measures we can take to keep these problems from developing in the first place, or from getting worse?

This free presentation by Cuyahoga Soil & Water Conservation District and the Rocky River Watershed Council will cover a wide range of topics including your rights and responsibilities as a stream owner, an introduction to how streams function and an overview of common stream-related problems and solutions.
