Happy winter! We hope you are outside exploring the great recreational opportunities around St. Clair County!
Thank you for visiting St. Clair County's website for water quality planning and stewardship activities. We are proud to lead the Northeastern, Anchor Bay, and Belle River Watershed groups.
As a leader of these groups, we partner with St. Clair County communities and school districts to meet federal regulations from the Clean Water Act requiring improvements in the rivers and streams we boat, swim and fish in. Our watershed groups are committed to protecting, enhancing and celebrating our rivers.
Look through our website for more information about local efforts to improve water quality and to check out family activities that help support these initiatives. Have a concern, comment or question related to water quality? We'd love to hear from you!Thanks for stopping by!
WINTER NEWS YOU CAN USE
With the beautiful colors of fall behind us and snow starting to fly, what can we all do this winter to keep our waterways clean and healthy? We can be smart about salt! Our winter chores have an impact on the ice melt and runoff coming from our properties. Salt applied to our driveways and sidewalks contribute to creek, ditch and stream pollution. These smaller waterways flow directly untreated to our larger rivers. Fifty pounds of salt, or one large bag, can pollute 10,000 gallons of water. Using less salt at home will help protect water quality in your neighborhood, and it will save money, too!
