St. Clair River Area of Concern

St. Clair River was labeled an Area of Concern under the 1987 Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement. Contaminated sediments and water affect fish, wildlife, and recreation. $21 million from the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative helped remediate and restore this AOC. Of the ten environmental impairments originally present, four remain.
