RECENT CONCERN REGARDING BELLEVILLE LAKE FISH
The State MDNR – Fisheries have visited the Ford Lake Dam and have done an investigation. The MDNR officials have communicated to the Township that the dam draws water from the lake bottom, bringing along with it many fish. Recently, an estimated 10,000 fish (mostly black crappie) were killed due to the fact that they were “sucked into” the turbines.
The Township is aware of this occurrence and remains in contact with the MDNR and officials from the Huron River Watershed. The officials have advised this occurrence is likely to last another month.
