The Department of Agriculture and Rural Development and the Eaton Conservation District announced a new website, http://www.miwaterstewardship.org , designed to encourage residents to help preserve water quality in the state.
"The site and its free online training program assists homeowners across Michigan on how to make simple changes in their daily routine which in turn benefits our water resources," said Agriculture Director Keith Creagh. "The Michigan Water Stewardship website showcases the state's overall effort to protect Michigan's abundant water resources and we are pleased to partner with our statewide conservation districts in utilizing this tool locally."
The site also provides lists of volunteer opportunities.
