Watershed Project Team to Share Update with Public December 2nd

submitted by Patricia A Jarrett, Muskegon River Watershed Assembly

The Muskegon River Watershed Assembly (MRWA) and partners will share progress on the Lower Muskegon River Watershed Management Plan update.

Join the leaders of the project on Thursday, December 2, 2021, from 6:00-7:30 p.m. via Zoom to learn about the project, its accomplishments, timeline, and future applications of the data.

In fall of 2020, the Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy (EGLE) awarded MRWA $108,000 to update their watershed management plan for the lower reaches of the basin. The project focuses on the specific subwatersheds of Bigelow Creek, Hess Lake, Brooks Creek and Mosquito Creek (extending from Croton Dam to upstream of Muskegon Lake).

Key elements of the project include new stream monitoring data, an agricultural inventory, wetland functional assessments, and an updated dam inventory.
