Watershed Council Seeking Feedback


As the Little Manistee Watershed Conservation Council (LMWCC) moves forward with the creation of their Watershed Management Plan, they need public feedback.At a public meeting on Jan. 23, several reports and tests were presented regarding the current and past water quality throughout the watershed. According to the Alliance for Economic Success, the watershed is reporting very well, but there are areas of concern regarding the removal of native vegetation and its effects on erosion within the watershed. Now, the LMWCC needs feedback about the public’s uses of and goals for protecting the watershed as they finalize their plan. The survey is open to anyone who lives in, near or has visited the Little Manistee Watershed. The survey can be found by clicking here.
