Lake St. Clair Direct Drainage Subwatershed Planning Process

The Lake St. Clair 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.
