Individual and community actions protect and improve the health of the Clinton River, assuring that its natural, economic, and recreational value enhances the quality of life of those who live, work, and play in the Clinton River watershed and Lake St. Clair.

Our Core Values

The quality of the water and stability of flow are important to support a diverse and healthy ecosystem and to provide recreational, economic, aesthetic, and educational opportunities that are essential to our quality of life.
The way we use our land determines the condition of our water resources.
A healthy environment promotes and sustains a strong economy, and a strong economy promotes and sustains a healthy environment.
Protecting and enhancing our water resources is the responsibility of everyone in our watershed and requires the coordinated involvement and effort of individuals, businesses, governments, and organizations throughout the watershed.
The Clinton River Watershed Council, with its watershed-wide view, is uniquely positioned to achieve our vision for the river.
