Prevent Stormwater Pollution
The Clinton River and its tributaries stretch across more than 760 square miles of land in southeast Michigan, including portions of Oakland, Macomb, Lapeer and St. Clair counties.
The river carries rain and snowmelt runoff, or stormwater, into Lake St. Clair. The quantity of stormwater entering our rivers, lakes and streams as well as the pollutants it carries can degrade aquatic habitat and water quality.
We can all take simple steps to reduce stormwater pollution.
After all the cheapest way to stop pollution is at the source.
