The Kalamazoo River Watershed Council (KRWC) focuses upon four key areas to
improve water quality
|Non-point Source Pollution|
|Habitat Loss and Degradation|
|In 1997, the Kalamazoo River Watershed Council (KRWC) approached the USEPA
and requested that emergency action be taken at the Bryant Mill Pond.
The Mill Pond was eliminated as a source of high-level PCBs to the river.
|The KRWC initiated the installation of fish consumption advisory signs
along the river the 1998, and have ensured their update and replacement.
We have recently worked in conjunction with elected officials to produce
copies of the Michigan Family Fish Consumption Advisory Guide.|
|In 2000, the KRWC co-sponsored "Addressing Public Health Concerns at the
Watershed Level," a conference which highlighted methods to address
environmental health issues through local watershed planning.|
|We have held eight successful River Roundtable meetings, to keep the
community informed, and gather citizen input on the River cleanup process.
