Lower Huron River Chain of Lakes Improvement Project
This Lake Improvement Project (Project) is a replacement/reinstatement for a Lake Improvement Project that started in 2017 that will run out of funds after the 2022 season.
The Lower Huron River Chain of Lakes Improvement Project, which originated in 2017, is seeking to continue with a modified* five (5) year project to control the growth and reproduction of non-native aquatic invasive plants, including but not limited to Eurasian watermilfoil and Starry Stonewort. The Project will also work to control the growth of nuisance native aquatic plants, including but not limited to Chara and Variable Pondweed. The Project will focus on maintaining the ecological health and recreational opportunities for the Lower Huron River Chain of Lakes. Additionally, other items may be included which would provide support for maintaining the ecological health and recreational opportunities that will be subject to approval by the Washtenaw County Board of Public Works (WCBPW).
*The modified Lower Huron River Chain of Lakes Lake Improvement Project in Washtenaw County and Livingston County will include the waters of Little Portage Lake, Big Portage Lake, Base Line Lake, Whitewood Lake, Tamarack Lake and connecting waters.
