Project Summary

Stony Creek, a third order coldwater stream located in Oceana County, Michigan, is a tributary connected directly (with the exception of Marshville Dam) to Lake Michigan at the lake’s midpoint. The project goal is intended to ameliorate the negative effects of excess sediment bedload, an undersized road/stream crossing, and the presence of a small dam.
