HRWC, partnering with Washtenaw County Water Resources Commissioner and Scio Township, will soon launch a new project to better understand the source(s) of bacterial contamination in Honey Creek and develop a plan to reduce or eliminate the problem. The Michigan Department of Environmental Quality recently announced that they will be awarding HRWC a grant of nearly $75,000 to do the work. Major elements of the project include:
- Monitoring starting in Spring 2012 at locations throughout Honey Creekshed;
- Bacterial Source Tracking to determine animal or human sources of bacteria;
- Development of a plan to reduce or eliminate the sources; and
- A local workshop to get input on the plan and educate residents about the problem.
