Urban Stormwater Reduction Services

The Wabash River Enhancement Corporation (WREC) is a 501c3 nonprofit agency. WREC leads community efforts to develop long range plans to improve the riverfront, the river corridor, and water quality; and engages the community in the implementation of these improvements. WREC's mission is to enhance the quality of life in the Wabash River Corridor by creating sustainable opportunities to improve health, recreation, education, economic development, and environmental management.

WREC has been purchasing riverfront property for the past decade. We are approaching the point of building infrastructure and opening one specific piece of land to the public for hiking. This specific property is adjacent to both Purdue University property (Ross Biologic Reserve) and Tippecanoe County Parks Department property (Ross Hills Park). These adjacent properties are all along the Wabash Riverfront and are ideal for a trail connection through the various properties. The team along with the project WREC contact will meet with Ross Reserve and County Parks staff to initiate the discussion, map the best course for the future trail, and design any stream crossing structures while keeping streamflow and hiker use in mind.
