With funds from the Fred A. and Barbara M. Erb Family Foundation, The Healthy Watersheds Department assisted the University of Michigan, the US Army Corps of Engineers, and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration on a project to quantify the sediment and related phosphorus coming from the near shore of Lake Huron.
Healthy Watersheds staff sampled seven resuspension events in Lake Huron between Grand Bend and Port Franks, with co-operating agricultural producers between March and November, 2021.
Results from this work will help to inform a better understanding of land/lake linkages and help to address water quality issues throughout the Great Lakes Basin.
