Watershed Management Plan

Grand River Watershed

The Grand River Watershed Management Plan includes both rural and urban areas. Urban land use makes up approximately 34% of the watershed and is mainly located within the City of Lansing, Delta Township and Delhi Township.  Water quality monitoring has been and continues to be conducted by the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality (MDEQ), the Michigan Department of Natural Resources (MDNR), and local volunteer monitoring groups to determine the effects of various land uses and specific problem areas. As part of this WMP, the permittees will support water quality monitoring to help show changes in water quality as the WMP is implemented.

Looking Glass River Watershed 

The Looking Glass River Watershed Management Plan includes both rural and urban areas.  The urban areas, which encompass approximately 11% of the watershed, include a portion of the Lansing metropolitan area (the Cities of Lansing, East Lansing, and Lansing Township), Meridian Township, and the City of DeWitt. The City of DeWitt and Bath and DeWitt Townships are experiencing development but still have rural (agricultural and forest) areas that can be protected. Watertown, Woodhull, Victor, Olive and Riley Townships are all in the watershed and all have rural areas with significant croplands.

Red Cedar River Watershed

The Red Cedar River Watershed Management Plan includes both rural and urban areas.  Urban land use makes up approximately 33% of the watershed and is mainly located within the Cities of Lansing, East Lansing, Mason, and Williamston; Meridian, Delhi, and Lansing Townships; and Michigan State University. Water quality monitoring has been and continues to be conducted by the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality (MDEQ), the Michigan Department of Natural Resources (MDNR), and local volunteer monitoring groups to determine the effects of various land uses and specific problem areas. As part of this WMP, the permittees will support water quality monitoring to help show changes in water quality as the WMP is implemented.
