Whitmore Lake Improvement Project OK’d

A five-year, $460,000 project to study and improve conditions at Whitmore Lake received initial approval from the Washtenaw County board of commissioners at its Feb. 1, 2012 meeting. The lake is located in Washtenaw County’s Northfield Township and Livingston County’s Green Oak Township. A final vote is expected at the board’s Feb. 15 meeting.

The effort – focusing on removal of invasive weeds – is a continuation of a project that began in 2003, and was renewed in 2007. It’s overseen by the county board of public works. The project’s cost will be recovered through special assessments on over 800 parcels near Whitmore Lake.
