Water Resources Commissioner
Thank you to those of you who attended out Environmental Excellence Awards Ceremony! We had such a fun time welcoming our new partners and honoring the outstanding work that our award winners do.
Washtenaw County's Office of the Water Resources Commissioner and Public Health's Environmental Health Division help produce two radio shows in collaboration with WEMU News. Tune in to hear about environmental issues impacting Washtenaw County!
The 2nd graders at Cornerstone Elementary School have designed their own rain gardens. After learning about the water cycle and stormwater, the students chose their own plants to create a design. In the words of one student, "I would rather be a rain drop that lands in a rain garden because you get clean and NOT dirty and then have to wash up".
The Water Resources Office will be conducting assessments of county drains and stormwater basins throughout Washtenaw County - starting immediately and continuing through the fall of 2017. During this time, we may be more visible to residents or be noticed at locations that typically don’t see much activity.
