Betsie River / Crystal Lake Watershed Management Plan
Watershed management planning is essential to helping communities understand and address the impacts nonpoint source (NPS) pollutants have on local rivers, lakes, wetlands, and groundwater.
The Watershed Management Plan for the Betsie River / Crystal Lake Watershed is a multi-year effort by a Steering Committee of Northwest Michigan partners, supported by a grant from the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality. The Plan will help protect surface water quality by preventing or reducing non-point source pollution during the Plan’s 10-year period from 2016 through 2026.
