Michigan Clean Water Corps (MiCorps)
The GLIN November Site of the Month is the newly redesigned Michigan Clean Water Corps (MiCorps) website! MiCorps is a program created to assist the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) in collecting and sharing water quality data for use in water resources management and protection programs. MiCorps is administered by the Great Lakes Commission under the direction of the DEQ and in partnership with the Huron River Watershed Council, Michigan Lake and Stream Associations, and Michigan State University.
MiCorps is comprised of two core volunteer monitoring programs, the Volunteer Stream Monitoring Program and the Cooperative Lakes Monitoring Program, and provides technical assistance and other support to local units of government, nonprofit entities, and other volunteers around the state in the management of these initiatives.
GLIN links hundreds of agencies and organizations serving the Great Lakes region. You may not have visited them all yet, especially with new data and information and more partners coming online every month. Because partnership is the core of GLIN, each month we highlight the wealth of information available on the web site of one active GLIN partner. These partners work closely with the GLIN Project Team to ensure that their information is integrated into the regional network; in turn, these partners point back to relevant GLIN pages from
wherever appropriate on their own web sites so that people can easily find information about a topic of interest.
