AquaMAP Project List Approval

Late July saw some much anticipated news come to the MAAC, as it was announced that the AquaMAP Project list was approved by U.S. EPA GLNPO. The 53 projects on this list were evaluated and conceptualized over several years by a dedicated subcommittee. These projects are located across the Maumee AOC and will address BUI 3a (Degradation of Fish Populations), BUI 6 (Degradation of Benthos), and BUI 14a (Loss of Fish Habitat). Management actions include instream habitat restoration, riparian buffer installation/enhancement, two-stage ditch installations, and much more. Please stay tuned for more news as these projects begin and then updates on progress over the next several years!

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.
