Millers Watershed Improvement Plan
After episodes of flooding and bank erosion on Pfizer property due to high flows in Millers Creek, Pfizer approached the Washtenaw County Drain Commissioner (WCDC) and the Huron River Watershed Council (HRWC) for help on a site improvements. With the advice of the WCDC and HRWC, Pfizer decided to take a watershed approach to solving their problems. Using a watershed approach will not only help minimize the impacts of Pfizer's proposed site improvements on upstream and downstream neighbors (including the creek itself), but will also provide a blueprint for potential improvements throughout the Millers Creek watershed.
The goal of the Millers Creek Watershed Plan is to develop a credible and sustainable plan for improving Millers Creek. We're looking for your help and ideas for improving the creek and its watershed.
The Project Team for the Improvement Plan includes the Millers Creek Action Team:
- City of Ann Arbor
- Washtenaw County Drain Commissioner
- University of Michigan
- Huron River Watershed Council
- Pollack Design
- Michigan Department of Environmental Quality
- Environmental Consulting & Technology, Inc. (ECT)
Local residents and volunteers have already begun to help as well. You can participate in this interesting study by contacting the Huron River Watershed Council. Call Jason Frenzel at (734) 769-5971 or email him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
