The Shiawassee River Task Force (SRTF) is a group of communities and interest groups at the headwaters of the main branch of the Shiawassee River within Oakland County. The SRTF consists of the local governments (Rose Township, Holly Village, Holly Township and Springfield Township) organizations including the Six Rivers Regional Land Conservancy, North Oakland Headwaters Land Conservancy, Oakland County Planning and Economic Development Services, Michigan State University Extension and others.
The Oakland County Water Resources Commissioner's Office (WRC) provides assistance in both water quality monitoring advice and service, planning and education outreach to the SRTF.
For more detailed information regarding downstream organizations working toward similar goals, visit the Saginaw Bay Watershed Initiative Network website or phone Friends of the Shiawassee (FOS) at 989-723-5256.
WRC's Environmental Team also participates in watershed planning in the Upper-2 Shiawassee River (USR) watershed located predominately in Livingston County, although small portions of Rose and Highland Townships in Oakland County fall within the watershed boundaries. The USR watershed group is facilitated by Ric Lawson of the HRWC, firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 734-769-5123 x609. The USR Watershed Plan (WMP) was completed in late 2005.
