Huron River, Baraga County
The Huron River Watershed Partnership has formed. This partnership, made up of a diverse variety of stakeholders, is taking steps to address erosion issues. In addition to identifying areas of erosional concern, the group has applied for a watershed planning grant with the State of Michigan. A full inventory of the river is being conducted to gather baseline data.
Millecoquins River, Mackinac County
SWP staff is assisting the Hiawatha Sportsman Club to establish a volunteer stream monitoring program here. Sedimentation is causing concern over water temperature and shifting the fishery from a cold water to a warm water.
Salmon Trout River, Marquette County
The Brook Trout Habitat Protection and Evaluation in the Salmon Trout River Watershed Project, to begin summer 2009, will reduce sedimentation at several sites and improve passage for fish and other aquatic organisms at one site in the Salmon Trout River watershed in Marquette County, Michigan. It will help prevent further habitat degradation and make additional habitat available for fish spawning, rearing and feeding. This project has been made possible with assistance from the US Fish and Wildlife Service.
