Lake St. Clair: Do Your Part!
We need your input about our water resources including the Clinton River, its tributaries and Lake St. Clair. Can you please take a few moments to complete this survey?
Lake St. Clair is often referred to as the heart of the Great Lakes, due to both its shape and position within the Great Lakes system. It is an important recreational, commercial, and aesthetic resource for nearly six million residents on both sides of the border. However, this vital and unique connecting waterway is being threatened by the harmful effects of stormwater runoff pollution.
Stormwater runoff occurs when rainwater and melting snow washes off parking lots, roads, driveways and rooftops collecting and depositing pollutants—such as excess fertilizer, oil, trash and feces—directly into our lakes and streams resulting in water quality and water quantity problems.
We are working to clean up and protect this important Great Lakes waterway – YOU can too!
Get involved today!
Join our Lake St. Clair Clean Water Team! Clean Water Action is putting together local teams to reduce polluted runoff in your community. Get involved by attending educational workshops, planting rain gardens, installing rain barrels, and/or helping lead teams of volunteers on a variety of different projects.
What is the solution to rainwater pollution? Catch the rain where it falls!
Diesel engines are the workhorses of our economy, found in everything from ships and trains to school and city buses, construction and agricultural vehicles, long-haul trucks and many other vehicles that keep our economy humming. However, the black exhaust that pours out of diesel vehicles is a silent killer, contributing to 21,000 early deaths in the United States each year.
Along with our partners in the Michigan Diesel Clean-up Campaign, Clean Water Action is spearheading a statewide effort to reduce harmful diesel emissions by up to 90 percent.
