Zach Siefkers project
For my project I am proposing to do a Delaware run clean up while also researching and trying to work on the Delaware Run de-channelization Project to make the north side of the academic campus more natural in a sense. This would involve me going to the 12th Annual Olentagy watershed Forum on October 22, 2015. Also I need to contact Kristin Piper to organize the run clean up. I also need to figure out if the Delaware Run de-channelization project is still a thing or not. I am planning on organizing and setting a date for the run clean up in the spring semester since it will be warmer and I will have more time to contact all the parties involved. The cleanup would be where the Run in not underground between Blue Limestone park and campus. I am doing this area because it is upstream of campus and I have helped out with clean ups on the academic part of the run already. Plus I looked at this section on campus and it does not look bad and I saw some fish in it. I am looking to plan the Run Cleanup in either March after spring break or in early April. It will probably be on a weekday since I have Track meets on the weekends or on an off weekend for track. I will present to the class at the end of the semester what I have found out about the run. This will be some facts and information about my cleanup project. Along with some notes form the forum and maybe some pictures as well. I will also present my findings and work on the Run de-channelization project.
