Phosphorus TMDL meeting and Kalamazoo River 319 project kick-off

The Lake Allegan/Kalamazoo River Phosphorus Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) Implementation Committee will meet on the morning of February 21 at 9:00am at the Kalamazoo Water Reclamation Plant, 1415 N. Harrison Street. Download a copy of the meeting agenda.

This meeting will serve as the kick-off meeting for the Watershed Council’s 319 project. The purpose of the project is two-fold: 1) to provide stormwater management assistance and educational outreach to non-regulated communities in the Lake Allegan TMDL watershed, and 2) to use bacterial source tracking methods to better understand the sources of pathogens in Davis Creek. At this meeting we will focus on how communities will be selected for stormwater management assistance and what level of commitment is required of participating communities.
