South Fishing Pier/Detroit River Restoration
This project supports the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative and the Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement pursuant to Public Law 11-88. Specifically, this project will address two Beneficial Use Impairments (BUI) 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, this project will provide a nursery area for fish in an area of the Detroit River with very little nursery habitat. The project aims to increase fish populations by providing connectivity between fish spawning and nursery areas in the river through the following actions: 1) create 2.5 acres of coastal wetland immediately downstream of an existing artificial spawning reef and 2) create deep and shallow water habitat in the flat bottomland of the Belle Isle South Fishing Pier.
