Huron River Watershed

Within the Huron River watershed, there are two subwatersheds: the Kent Lake/Upper Huron and Chain of Lakes. Each of these subwatersheds have worked together in the past to develop subwatershed management plans.

Initially, the Huron River Watershed Council (HRWC) coordinated development of a Watershed Management Plan for the Kent Lake subwatershed to address the Total Daily Maximum Load (TMDL) exceedance for phosphorus loading that was resulting in eutrophication in Kent Lake.

Years later, a watershed management plan for the Kent Lake/Upper Huron was developed to comply with the Federal Phase II Stormwater Regulations.

The remainder of the Huron River drainage area in Oakland County consists of Davis Creek and Woodruff Creek branches of the river. Stakeholders in the drainage area outside of Oakland County also completed the Huron Chain of Lakes Watershed Management Plan.
