Water Quality Model

Three Lakes is proud to announce the award of a $80,000 grant from the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality for the construction of a second predictive water quality model. This model will allow us to predict water quality changes in Clam Lake, and Lake Bellaire in years to come. We will combine this Phase 2 model with the Torch Lake Phase 1 model for greater protection of our watershed.

We are collaborating with Helena, Forest Home, Central Lake, Kearney, Custer, Torch Lake, Milton, and Clearwater Townships, Torch Lake Protection Alliance, Antrim Conservation District, Grand Traverse Bay Watershed Center, Northwest Michigan Council of Governments, and the Great Lakes Environmental Center on this project.
