County Water Council Meets

The newly formed Macomb County Water Resources Advisory Council held its first meeting Wednesday.

Members of the Macomb County Water Resources Advisory Council met Wednesday for the first time.

The 22-member council was created in May by Macomb County Executive Mark Hackel. The council will concentrate on tourism, recreation and supporting clean water efforts and economic development along Lake St. Clair and the Clinton River.

"I'm extremely excited about working with this new panel," Hackel said of the council in a release. "We all agreed that it's not enough to identify problems, but how to identify and find solutions."  

The appointment of the council is part of Hackel's New initiative which focuses on water access, water attraction and water quality.

Among the goals of the council are opening the Clinton River for canoeing and kayaking; posting Lake St. Clair r signs along major roadways in the county; and clearing the waterways of debris and pollution.

Members of the council include: Hackel; Board of Commissioners Chair Kathy Vosburg; Steve Remias, Michigan Boating Industries Association; Luanne Lammerman, Macomb County environmental prosecutor; and Gary White, Macomb County Health Department.

O.K. Hackel and members of the County Water Council.....First step, Clean up the pollution. Prevent the overflow of raw sewage in this lake before your plan of Kayackers in the Clinton River come down with sickness, and help out with cleaning up Macombs beaches so they do not year after year appear on the Countrys worst top 10 beaches across the USA. Do that and you and your council will have a whole community of Lake St. Clair active users...boaters, fisherman, jetski people singing you praises.
