Sault Ste. Marie Watershed Management Plan

The Sault Ste. Marie Area Watershed Management Plan is a partnership of local citizens and environmental professionals concerned over water quality in the Sault Ste. Marie area.  This resulting watershed management plan is an assessment of current conditions and characteristics of water quality in the creeks and groundwater within the watershed of the City of Sault Ste. Marie.  The assessment also takes into account historical and social perspectives that have helped shape water quality conditions.

The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) provided funding for this project through Section 604(b) of the Clean Water Act.  The plan was completed on October 10, 2007.

Viral Hemorrhagic Septicemia (VHS)

VHS is a severe disease of freshwater and marine fish recently found in the Great Lakes.  It can be spread by infected fish,  contaminated water sources or contaminated objects.  Ensure the virus does not spread to additional locations by taking these steps:

  • Thoroughly clean and dry your boat or trailer before using again
  • Empty all water from equipment before transporting
  • Remove all mud, plants, and aquatic life from equipment
  • Do not move fish or plants from one body to another

Stop your boat from spreading fish disease.  Be responsible.  Clean it out.  Wash it down.
