PUBLIC INVOLVEMENT PROGRAMS THAT SUPPORT WATER QUALITY MANAGEMENT
Abstract:The Rouge River, a tributary to the Detroit River, in southeast Michigan, has been documented as a significant source of pollution to the Great Lakes System. The Rouge River Watershed spans approximately 438 square miles in 48 communities, three counties and is home to over 1.5 million residents. The eastern portion of the watershed consists of much of the older, industrial areas of Detroit and Dearborn. The western and northern portions consist of newer suburban communities and areas under heavy development pressure.
