Maple River HomeWaters Update - Spring 2015

The goal in the Maple River Watershed, a high quality coldwater system, is 100% connectivity – a rare and challenging opportunity. The main stem flows roughly 23 miles in Emmet County before flowing into Burt Lake and the Cheboygan River Watershed. Like many northern Michigan rivers, historic logging, agricultural practices, and transportation development have left an impact over the last century. This initiative provides a unique chance for fish and wildlife to access over 40 miles of aquatic habitat, including the main stem and its tributaries, completely unrestricted.

Bridges are Great – Bugs are Better

Do full span bridges and culverts improve water quality? In the case of the Maple River, the proof is in the pudding thanks to the Little Traverse Bay Bands of Odawa Indians. Since 2001, their staff has been monitoring the West Branch of the Maple River every other year. They track aquatic macroinvertebrates, phosphorus, dissolved oxygen, temperature, pH and more.
