Muskegon Lake Area of Concern (AOC)

The Muskegon Lake AOC in western Michigan includes the entire lake, which is separated from Lake Michigan by sand dunes and a navigation channel. In 2012, a $12 million project under the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative’s Legacy Act removed about 43,000 cubic yards of sediment contaminated with mercury and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, or PAHs.
