A map of the Stony Creek Watershed.


The Stony Creek Watershed lies within Washtenaw and Monroe Counties in Southeastern Michigan and contains portions of Pittsfield, Ypsilanti, York, Augusta, Milan, London, Exeter, Ash, and Frenchtown Townships, and very small parts of the cities of Ann Arbor, Ypsilanti, Milan, and the Village of Maybee. Sandwiched between the larger Huron River Watershed and the River Raisin Watershed, the Stony Creek Watershed is a long, narrow watershed (about 32 miles long and 8 miles at its widest) that is oriented northwest-southeast and tapers as it drains toward Lake Erie in Frenchtown Township just north of Monroe, MI.

The Stony Creek watershed is located in Washtenaw and Monroe Counties in southeastern Michigan. The Water Resources Consortium (WRC) and the Institute for Community Development (ICARD) at Eastern Michigan University have been awarded a grant from the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality to work with stakeholder partners in the development of a watershed management plan for the Stony Creek that addresses nonpoint source pollution that degrades the stream (leading to poor fish and other wildlife populations, degraded quality for body contact, etc). The steering committee is holding monthly meetings which are open to the public (see below for time and place of next meeting) .
