Southeast Michigan Report Card

Watershed report cards are powerful tools to describe ecosystem status, increase public awareness, and inform and influence decision makers to improve the health of a watershed. This is the first Southeast Michigan Report Card, which provides an overall socio-environmental assessment of Southeast Michigan based on the combined scores from six river watersheds: Clinton, Detroit, Huron, River Raisin, and Rouge. This report card is the collective effort of dozens of stakeholders throughout Southeast Michigan. Indicators in the report card were selected to assess the health of six different values in the watershed: Water, Economy, Ecosystem, Human Health, Infrastructure, and Recreation. Overall, Southeast Michigan earned a score of 49%, a C.
