Spotlight on Clinton River Dredging Project

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Detroit District Commander, Lt. Col. Dennis P. Sugrue recently went on a site visit to see the progress at the Clinton River Mouth Habitat project in Harrison Township, Michigan.

Dredged material from the federal navigation channel is currently being placed in Lake St. Clair near the Clinton River Mouth to create emergent wetland habitat.

According to the Corps, placement will occur through the Fall and the area will be planted with a variety of native wetland plants in spring 2018.

The ecosystem project – awarded to Anglin Civil, LLC, Livonia, Mich., for almost $1.2 million – is being funded through the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative, GLRI, managed by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, EPA.

With the majority of construction scheduled to be completed in May 2018, the project will remove invasive species, soften the shoreline and establish wetlands by planting native species to create four different habitat types that are rare in the area but provide benefits to fish and wildlife.

After initial project actions are accomplished, some establishment activities will take place through May 2019.
