Watershed Center receives grants

TRAVERSE CITY — The Watershed Center Grand Traverse Bay received two grants from the US EPA Great Lakes Restoration Initiative (GLRI) and one from the Michigan Department of Natural Resources Fisheries Habitat Grant Program.

The center plans to use the $518,564 GLRI grant to install an infiltration trench under Northport Public School’s parking lot and a bio-retention area along Main Street. A $600,000 GLRI grant and $149,200 of MDNR funding will be used to reestablish a riparian buffer at a section of Kids Creek near Silver Lake Road. Also, a 1-acre wetland will be built to intercept storm water runoff from the Meijer parking lot.

These projects are part of the Kids Creek Restoration Project, which aims to make improvements that will remove the creek from the state’s Impaired Waters List.
