The results are in!  The results, that is, from DCWA's monitoring of Duck Lake in 2016.  Go to the Science Corner to view graphics that display the findings.  There is also a link to a brief executive summary in mostly non-technical language.

The DCWA's next meeting (postponed will beheld at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, 2 May, in the Fruitland Township Hall.  Please plan to join us!

The DCWA is pleased to announce it has received a $15,000 grant from Freshwater Future, the largest award in our history.  In cooperation with WMEAC and the Anis Water Resources Institute, the grant will fund studies of the sources of sediment that have accumulated at the mouth of Duck Creek.  More information is available at

The DCWA's Technical Coordinator, Dr. Thomas Tisue, presented a poster at the 12th Annual Stewardship Network Conference, East Lansing, MI, 13 - 14 January 2017.  Titled "Road-Stream Crossings: Characterization and Remediation", the poster highlighted the work of our partner organization, the White River Watershed Partnership, to assess and if necessary to replace under-performing road-stream crossing structures.  The DCWA is carrying out similar assessments of road-stream crossings in the Duck Creek watershed.  See the Science Corner for more details.

The DCWA is partnering with the Muskegon Conservation District, the Land Conservancy of West Michigan, and the Department of Environmental Quality in an exciting new project to conserve, protect, and enhance water quality in Duck Creek and Duck Lake.  For more information, click on the "Duck Creek Implementation Project" button above.
