Macomb County's Blue Economy Gaining Steam,...

Apr 03 2013 10:45 AM
County Executive Mark Hackel says marketing Macomb as a key place for business, family and recreation will remain a priority in 2013, but continued consolidation of county resources and a focus on regional cooperation will also take center stage.

Lake levels near record low

Feb 20 2013 02:17 PM
Second in a series on the environmental health of the Lake St. Clair basin. The water levels of Lake Huron and Lake St. Clair are nearing historic lows. "We're not at historic lows, but we're close to historic lows," said Lana Pollack, U.S. chair of the International Joint Commission, speaking at the sixth Binational Lake St. Clair Conference, held at MacRay Harbor in Harrison Township on Nov. 29 and 30. "There's a 60 percent chance we'll hit it. That's good for phragmites, but not for boating." On Nov. 30, according to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Detroit District, Lake Huron stood at 576.2 feet. The all time low for Lake Huron is 576.0 feet, set in March 1964. "Lake Michigan-Huro...

Who pulled the plug on Lake Huron?

Nov 06 2012 08:04 AM
Mike Connell: Who pulled the plug on Lake Huron? Nov 4, 2012 On a mild day last month, I took a barefoot stroll on the near-shore sandbar at Lakeside Beach. While I chose to make a splash here and there, I could have ambled along without getting my feet wet. With waves no higher than the pen in my pocket, the sandbar was dry land. Had I attempted the same walk in October 1986, I would have been swimming. The lake level today is nearly six feet lower than it was 26 years ago. Hey, who pulled the plug on Lake Huron? «« »» WHAT IS BEHIND the diminishing levels? Is this just nature being nature, or is human manipulation involved? Answering such questions is difficult, even for the scientists who devote their careers to studying the Gr... Read story →    0 comments

Dec 18 2012 04:02 PM
Accessing the New Baltimore shoreline by boat will get a lot easier.

The docks will be along Anchor Bay in the so-called old beach area of Walter and Mary Burke Park near the water plant. Harsens Island-based Tamis Marine Construction is slated to do the work in New Baltimore. The city's engineer is to review the design plans beforehand.
