The next Middle Huron Initiative and Partners meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, July 2 at 9:30 am at location TBD.
A special meeting with MDEQ to discuss NPDES permitting in the Middle Huron River watershed is scheduled for June 16 at 1:00 pm at the NEW Center.
The Middle Huron Program sets actions to reduce pollution in the middle section of the Huron River Watershed. Phosphorus is the primary pollutant of focus for the program. The program is a voluntary partnership of local governments.
In general, the overall action plan calls for the partners to:
- Improve monitoring and modeling for nutrient sources (both phosphorus and nitrogen), which act as pollutants;
- Support increased research and monitoring;
- Support watershed education and planning;
- Assist landowners and local governments to engage in practices to reduce the amount of phosphorus, and other pollutants, entering the river;
- Upgrade sewage and wastewater treatment facilities and improve their operation; and
- Provide a source of support to test innovative ideas to reduce phosphorus pollution.
