Please be advised that flood debris removal on the Wixom and Sanford lakebottom lands has begun and will continue through the summer. You will see equipment and crews on the bottomlands of both lakes removing uprooted trees, loose stumps, dock parts, boat lifts, hazardous substances like gas cans, watercraft, and other man-made objects within the 100-year floodplain. Trees and stumps attached to the lake bottom will be left in place. Some mowing of vegetation on the lake bottom will be done as part of this project, but only enough to allow crews to find and remove debris.
FLTF is serving as Midland County's sponsor for the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) Emergency Watershed Protection (EWP) Program. The EWP program covers 75% of the cost to remove flood debris and the county pays for the remaining 25% (FLTF is not responsible for any project costs).
