The Upper Subwatershed encompasses 91.37 square miles and includes
portions of eight cities and townships in both Wayne and Oakland
Counties. It lies in the northern central portion of the Rouge River
Watershed in Southeastern Michigan. All of the rainwater that falls
on this land area flows over the land, into storm drains, or through
groundwater to the Upper Branch of the Rouge River that flows in
a southeasterly path.
The Upper Subwatershed Group has developed a watershed
management plan in accordance with the requirements of the Michigan
General Storm Water Permit. For questions or further information
contact Jack Bails at firstname.lastname@example.org.
A Common Appendix
has been developed for the subwatershed management plans. This includes
detailed technical data, maps, and information best management practices
for each of the seven subwatersheds.
The Upper Subwatershed Group has prepared the 2003
Progress Measures Interim Report for the Upper
Subwatershed Management Plan. This report provides an update on each
of the status measures identified in the Subwatershed Management Plan.
The Upper Subwatershed Group supports a number of public involvement activities throughout the year, many in cooperation with the Friends of the Rouge. Please review the minutes of the Upper SWAG for notices of upcoming public involvement activities designed to encourage stewardship of the river.
