The Southeast Michigan Council of Governments is asking for public comment on their new Water Resources Plan for the region.

SEMCOG brings together the governments within 7 counties, including Livingston, to solve regional challenges and enhance the quality of life for residents. The new Water Resources Plan they are preparing focuses on 28 policy recommendations and actions relating to restoring and keeping the water in southeast Michigan safe. It places an emphasis integrated water resources management, natural resources protection, and water infrastructure systems.

The plan was developed using the help of a 70 member Water Resources Task Force. Several regional surveys, stakeholder planning sessions, and public forums were used to help draft the document.

The plan, when finished, will be incorporated into SEMCOG’s 2045 Regional Transportation Plan for Southeast Michigan. A link to the plan can be found below. (MK)
