GRAND TRAVERSE: County moving toward own soil control measures
LaBelle asks that money be set aside for restoration
TRAVERSE CITY - Experts claim soil erosion continues unabated, fouling the streams of the Mitchell Creek Watershed while Grand Traverse County and developer Bill Clous keep battling in court.
"It would have been great to get some (control measures) in May of last year, but I don't think that diminished the importance of getting them in now," said Todd Kalish, a fisheries biologist with the Michigan Department of Natural Resources. "It's critical to get those measures implemented."
