Overview

Earlier this year, the Water Resources Division of the Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy included the inner portion of Saginaw Bay in its list of impaired waters—due to algal growth from persistent nutrient loading. With this designation, a new Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) is being developed to identify reduction goals to address it.

Join us for the opportunity to learn from guest experts about this impaired water designation, how it could impact growers in the watershed and how to access new and upcoming resources to mitigate it.

Join us in Frankenmuth or virtually!

This event includes both an online and in-person option. For in-person attendees, doors open at 8:30 a.m., with a light breakfast. There is no cost to attend, but pre-registration is required. If attending virtually, you'll receive a link to access the meeting after registering.
