MUSKEGON LAKE CELEBRATES – Fish & Wildlife Habitat Restoration Celebration Event
July 11 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm
The Muskegon Lake Watershed Partnership (MLWP) is pleased to announce that two additional Beneficial Use Impairments (BUIs) (Fish & Wildlife Habitat Restoration) have been removed from the Muskegon Lake Area of Concern (AOC) list. The lake was designated as one of 43 Great Lakes AOCs in 1985. Only the most severely degraded portions of the Muskegon Lake Watershed were included in the AOC boundary.
Join us on Tuesday, July 11 at 12:00 Noon to celebrate these achievements and to hear more about the MLWP’s plans for the future. The public event will be hosted at GVSU AWRI, 740 W. Shoreline Dr., Muskegon – and via Zoom. The celebratory event will include a presentation by Dusty Tazelaar, Ramboll, Inc. on the restoration completed at the former Amoco Petroleum Storage Facility. Following the presentation, members of the media and the public are welcome to attend a 2:00 p.m. press conference and walking tour along the Riverwalk at the Muskegon Lake Nature Preserve, 2529 Lake Ave., N. Muskegon, Michigan.
Kathy Evans, MLWP Habitat Committee Chair – “The work to meet the AOC’s habitat targets has been accomplished and the MLWP is focused on reaching other critical restoration goals, including improvements for habitat connectivity within the estuary between the former Zephyr Oil Tank Farm and the former Consumers Energy B.C. Cobb Power Plant.”
