Location: Newaygo County

Project Status: Completed in 2014

Duration: April 2012 – March 2014

The focus of this project is to:

1) incorporate, update and add to a previous road stream crossing inventory conducted in Newaygo County
2) incorporate and update a previous (2010) prioritized dam inventory for the entire Muskegon River Watershed that was developed from available records information, and
3) site inventory dams in Newaygo County, Muskegon County, and the six principal dams on the Muskegon River mainstem.

Additional funding was secured through the DNR in 2013 to continue this project through 2014. An estimated 600 additional road crossing inventories will be collected along with inventorying road crossing and dam sites in Montcalm and Mecosta Counties.
