Chain of Lakes Improvement Project

Hamburg Home

Wednesday, March 15, 2017 - 7:00 p.m. - Public Hearing at Hamburg Township Hall Boardroom

The Chain of Lakes Improvement Project is a five (5) year project to control the growth and reproduction of non-native invasive weeds, including Eurasian Milfoil and Starry Stonewort. The project will include spot treatments in problem areas and support other activities that would enhance the recreational and biological quality of the lake. Additionally, all necessary regulatory approvals and scientific studies for the chemical treatments as well as the creation of a lake management plan are included in the project. The total estimated cost for the five (5) year project is $1,952,530. A Special Assessment District consisting of benefiting parcels in Washtenaw and Livingston Counties will cover the total estimated cost of the project. Commercial and residential waterfront and lake access parcels form the project special assessment district because these parcels receive a benefit from the implementation of the project. The cost of the project will be distributed using the formula reflecting the varying benefit provided to each type of property.
