Good Harbor Bay Watershed Protection Plan
The Leelanau Conservancy, in partnership with both the Lime Lake and Little Traverse Lake Associations along with Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore and the Leelanau Conservation District have developed a draft Good Harbor Bay Watershed Protection Plan. Planning started in Summer 2011and the draft plan has been submitted for review to the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality. The DEQ review of the draft report required minor changes which have been incorporated and it has been resubmitted; we await final approval.
Good Harbor Bay’s watershed includes Lime Lake (Kasson and Cleveland townships); Little Traverse Lake (Cleveland Township); School, Bass and Shell Lakes (Cleveland and Glen Arbor townships); and area that flows directly into Good Harbor Bay in Glen Arbor, Cleveland and Leland township (see map).
