Project Title & Description
Grand Traverse Bay - East Bay Park Remediation
This project supports the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative and the Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement, pursuant to Public Law 112-10. The Watershed Center Grand Traverse Bay will implement stormwater management measures at three storm drains discharging at East Bay Park. Low impact development techniques such as bio-swales and rain gardens will be used to manage stormwater runoff from the parking lot and permeable pavement will be installed at the canoe/kayak launch. The modifications are expected to eliminate sources of bacterial contamination, protect public health and improve beach water quality.
