Project Title & Description
Betsie and Platte Rivers Watershed Improvement-Phase 2
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 implement Best Management Practices (BMPs) to address excessive sedimentation, channelization and inadequately designed and constructed road crossings in the Betsie and Platte River Watersheds, which flow into Lake Michigan. The BMPs will include road/stream crossing replacement with appropriately sized structures, strategic placement of woody debris, wetland restoration, and re-vegetation of unstable stream banks.
