Water quality: Grant will help marinas access green infrastructure

Stormwater runoff can carry sediments, chemicals, pathogens, and litter straight into the nearest water body. Marinas that can’t manage stormwater efficiently are at higher risk of flooding, erosion, water contamination, and sewage problems.

In 2019, a team from the Michigan, Ohio, and Wisconsin Sea Grant programs are embarking on a three-year venture to help marinas make their facilities more environmentally sustainable by harnessing the power of green infrastructure.

Michigan Sea Grant is a collaborative effort of the University of Michigan and Michigan State University to foster economic growth and protect Michigan’s coastal, Great Lakes resources through education, research and outreach.
