Title

These rain events also carry pollutants from the impervious areas to the creek, lowering water quality. The proposed improvements will improve water quality and reduce both onsite and downstream flooding.

To address the flooding and water quality impairments in the Huron Hills Creek area, City staff propose an improvement project that will address erosion and water quality by daylighting the historic creek through the back 9 holes of the Huron Hills Golf Course, and widening the creek on the front 9 holes of the Huron Hills Golf Course. The proposed work will promote streambank stabilization and habitat improvement on the identified section, wholly within the City of Ann Arbor drainage area.
Since this project focus is on water-quality improvement, it would be eligible for low-interest State Revolving Fund (SRF) loan funding, and this project has been included on the Michigan Department of Environmental (MDEQ) Project Priority List (PPL) for SRF loan funding.

Before any project can commence, a Drain District must be created with the Washtenaw County Water Resources Commissioner's Office. A Drain District establ...
