4 | Lake Michigan and its tributaries
Manistique River: The AOC encompasses the last 1.7 miles of the river before it connects with Lake Michigan; degradation has occurred from the physical alteration of the river (artificial islands and a dam) as well as discharge from paper mills and a wastewater treatment plant.
Menominee River: Forming the boundary between the northeast corner of Wisconsin and the southern tip of Michigan's Upper Peninsula, the river has been polluted by a chemical company, two paper mills, two municipal wastewater treatment plants, a ship building company, and a foundry.
Fox River-Southern Green Bay: Including the largest inland lake in Wisconsin, this AOC's water resources have been affected by runoff pollution from urban and rural areas, municipal and industrial wastewater discharges, and degraded habitats.
White Lake: White Lake was originally listed as an AOC primarily due to contaminated groundwater migrating to the lake from the Occidental Chemical Site (formerly Hooker Chemical Company).
