Blue Heron Lagoon/Detroit River Restoration Project
This project supports the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative and the Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement, pursuant to Public Law 111-88. Specifically, this project will address two Beneficial Use Impairments relating to fish and wildlife in the Detroit River Area of Concern: Loss of Fish and Wildlife Habitat and Degradation of Fish and Wildlife Populations. To contribute to the restoration of these beneficial uses, the project proposes to reconnect and naturalize the discharge of Belle Isle�s Blue Heron Lagoon to the Detroit River, restoring fish access to over 95 acres of existing wetlands, shallow and deep water habitat and over 2.2 miles of canal habitat. In addition, the project will enhance five acres of coastal wetland specifically designed for fish rearing and nursery habitat.
