Clinton River Scheme Gets Support

The City of Sterling Heights and the City of Utica recently received a $4.5 million grant from the Environmental Protection Agency for a nine-mile restoration project along the Clinton River, known as the Clinton River Corridor Habitat Restoration Project.

The $4.5 million grant includes no local match.

According to the grant agreement from the EPA, the project will improve habitat along the designated nine-mile section of the Clinton River upstream from its confluence with the Red Run Drain.

Much of the planned work will be done in partnership with the Clinton River Watershed Council (CRWC). The engineering firm Hubbell, Roth & Clark will work as the engineering consultant for the project.

“Sterling Heights will use this EPA Great Lakes Restoration Initiative grant to improve riparian and in-stream habitat in the Clinton River Area of Concern,” said U.S. EPA Region 5 Administrator/Great Lakes National Program Manager Susan Hedman.

The scope of the Clinton River Corridor Habitat Restoration Project will improve habitat diversity, accommodate a wide range of river flows, and resolve sedimentation, incision, and bank erosion issues impairing habitat by addressing in-stream, riparian, and wetland features.

Actions will include channel enhancements, woody debris management, bank stabilization, multi-stage channel development, invasive species control and native species planting.
