The Alliance of Downriver Watershed (ADW) members have been formerly and informally working together for several years to manage the area's water resources on a watershed basis and to comply with federal regulations regarding the discharge of storm water. The ADW is a permanent watershed organization formed under Public Act 517 of the Public Laws of 2004. The ADW formed in January 2007 and consists of 26 public agencies in the Ecorse Creek, Combined Downriver, and Lower Huron River Watersheds in southeast Michigan. The agencies and communities that comprise the ADW believe there are substantial benefits that can be derived by joining together and cooperatively managing the rivers, lakes, and streams within the watersheds and in providing mutual assistance in meeting state water discharge permit requirements of the members.
Update - February, 2014
Participation in the ADW has been dissolved because the Village has sought to have their NPDES permit changed to a "Jurisdictional" permit which will allow the Village to better control it own expenses. Most of the permit work is now being down in-house.
