Protecting Lake Michigan
SWMPC Water Quality Survey
Do you know what contributed the most to the pollution of lakes, rivers, and streams? Southwest Michigan Planning Commission (SWMPC) is curious about what you know and we have a 5-7 minute survey we would like you to take if you live or have a home in Berrien or Cass County.
Storm water runoff (rain water) picks up a variety of pollutants from many sources and washes them into rivers, our ground water, and ultimately Lake Michigan. In fact, most of this polluted runoff begins at home. This survey will help us understand what you know about local water pollution and water quality so that we can improve education and communication about water quality issues in Berrien and Cass Counties and take measures to achieve pollution reduction and improved water quality.
