Rust Tract Wetland Restoration

Ottawa County 

This project will restore a 7-acre emergent marsh and enhance another existing but degraded 8-acre marsh along the north bank of the Toussaint River.  A pump system will be installed to divert 178-acres of agricultural runoff into the wetlands to be filtered before they flow into the river.  This project was developed with the support of the Great Lakes Fish and Wildlife Restoration Act and the Lake Erie CREP.
