The Mackinaw River Project Planning Team worked with experts to form a plan for improving water quality. The plan includes strategies, achievable goals, and specific recommendations. Sources of pollution were identified as agriculture, construction erosion, urban runoff, hydrologic modifications, and resource extraction activities. Recommendations were made for each of the following topics: agriculture, biological diversity, community issues, education, and agency coordination.
