Muskegon Conservation District in the News

Wednesday, July 20, 2011

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Region 5 distributed a press release today announcing the restoration effort for the shoreline of White Lake, near Muskegon.  The $2.1 million investment, part of the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative (GLRI), will ultimately result in the lake being taken off the binational list of U.S. - Canada "Areas of Concern" or AOCs.  White Lake flows into Lake Michigan via the White River. 

The Muskegon Conservation District was awarded GLRI funding in 2010, in partnership with the White Lake Public Advisory Council.  The Conservation District will oversee the work, which will be performed by local firms.
