Upcoming BUI Workshop

The Maumee AOC Advisory Subcommittee on Fish Habitat and Benthos Recovery has been developing and detailing a list of future potential Management Action Projects (MAPs) to accelerate addressing issues within the Maumee AOC.  This workshop is intended to produce a list of recommended management actions for specific impairments for funding under the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative in order to make strides towards removing several Beneficial Use Impairments that have been identified under the AOC program.  Presenters will speak on current MAAC-recommended projects to specifically address Fish Habitat (BUI 14) and Benthos Recovery (BUI 6) and attendees will provide expert input and local recommendations for additional projects.  The goal of the workshop is to collaboratively develop effective and efficient plans for projects that will help delist BUIs.

The Maumee AOC Committee works toward fishable and swimmable waters in the Maumee Area of Concern and delisting the beneficial use impairments. The Committee is working towards all major restoration projects being completed by 2025, through collaboration of partners and volunteer opportunities by its facilitating organization, Partners for Clean Streams. The committee is made up of representatives from various organizations, citizens, businesses and non-government agencies to build long term solutions to the area’s water quality issues.
