I've been a member of the monitoring committee for the Nine Mile Run Watershed restoration for a number of years. The goal of the  project, managed by the Nine Mile Run Watershed Association, is to accurately assess the health of Nine Mile Run, to help us understand what has been achieved and what remains to be done to reach a healthy ecosystem. 

The committee recently completed a report card outlining the current progress of the restoration.
