ODC Network's 2020 Top Story #2
Project Clarity installed a 1.5 acre wetland on GR Brinks Heritage Farm in Fillmore Township this September. Located near the headwaters of the Macatawa River’s North Branch, this wetland will help treat and store floodwater from adjacent and upstream farm fields, helping remove phosphorus and sediment from the stream. The wetland will help control water on the edge of the farm fields, as well as providing habitat for waterfowl and amphibians.
This is one of over a dozen projects that we’ve completed along the North Branch, including an adjacent two-stage channel and our Macatawa Mitigation Bank wetland.
