Clinton River East Subwatershed Planning Process

The Clinton River East Watershed (CREW) subwatershed management plan was put in place November 2006. Since that time (and before the plan’s approval), local governments, community leaders, citizens’ groups, businesses, and environmental organizations have worked together to implement their plan.
