Habitat Restoration Database: Clinton River

NOAA-GLC Regional Habitat Restoration Partnership

Clinton River Habitat Restoration Database

The habitat restoration projects at Clinton River took place at Black Creek Marsh . The project aimed to restore approximately two acres of critical wetland habitat and increase fish spawning and rearing habitat within the AOC boundary. The Black Creek Marsh restoration project was completed in 2018, with additional post-restoration monitoring to take place during 2020. 

The following metrics were collected during pre- and post- monitoring of the project sites:

Fish Monitoring Data: Fish population data was collected at the Black Creek Marsh restoration site. 

Water Quality Data: Samples were collected during pre- and post- restoration monitoring and tested for metrics such as temperature, dissolved oxygen, total dissolved and suspended solids, conductivity, and pH at the Black Creek Marsh restoration site. .

Funding

The Clinton River Area of Concern has received over $30 million of funding from the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative (GLRI) from both the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and Great Lakes Commission Regional Partnership. The GLRI is a federal program designed to protect and restore that largest system of fresh surface water in the world—the Great Lakes.
