The State of Michigan awarded $15 million to Four Lakes Task Force (FLTF) to aid in restoration efforts of the four lakes. Funding may be used for feasibility studies and engineering design, flood and environmental studies, site readiness, and construction to restore the lake levels.
Four Lakes Task Force negotiated an access agreement with Boyce Hydro Power, and got a limited stay from the bankruptcy court, for the four dams the week of October 12.
During the summer season after the May 2020 flood events, many of the exposed bottomlands of the former Wixom Lake and Sanford Lake as well as some of the connected streams and other lakes have become densely vegetated, from the natural seed bank in the exposed soil. Vegetation is a highly effective means of stabilizing sediments and preventing further erosion or scouring of these areas.
