A KAYAKING ON THE LOOKING GLASS RIVER

Watershed Management Efforts

As a community located in the Middle Looking Glass River Watershed that meets certain criteria, the City of DeWitt has been directed by the State of Michigan to secure permits from the State which authorizes it to discharge storm water through its storm sewer system to waters of the State.

In order to maintain a permit, the State has required the City on an ongoing basis to accomplish certain tasks that will result in cleaner storm water being conveyed to receiving bodies. One of these tasks is working with neighboring communities (IE: Bath, DeWitt and Watertown Townships) in developing a storm water management plan for the Middle Looking Glass River watershed.

Other initiatives as part of the permitting process include public education efforts on protecting and maintaining water resources, development of local ordinances that regulate storm water discharges and mapping and inspecting all storm sewer outlets.

Many of these tasks are being accomplished by the City in conjunction with other greater Lansing area communities through the Greater Lansing Regional Committee (GLRC) on regarding the City’s efforts to manage storm water and develop a watershed management plan is available on the http://mywatersheds.org/
