Fund For Lake Michigan

Prioritization of Restoration in the Oak Creek Watershed

  • Grant Recipient: City of Racine
  • Amount: $107,500
  • Year: 2015
  • Watershed: Oak Creek
  • Focus Area: Monitoring/Watershed Planning

With this grant from the Fund, the City of Racine will monitor water quality at 17 high-priority locations throughout the Oak Creek watershed. The results of the monitoring will inform plans to clean up Milwaukee’s Grant Park Beach as well as a comprehensive Watershed Restoration Plan for Oak Creek, which is the last major watershed in Southeast Wisconsin that lacks such a plan.
