MUSKEGON, MI – The leading source of water pollution in West Michigan is contaminated stormwater runoff, according to the West Michigan Environmental Action Council.
Thanks to a grant from the Community Foundation for Muskegon County, local residents can do something about it.
The foundation grant will provide Muskegon County residents with low-cost rain barrels to prevent water pollution and conserve water. The water collected can be safely used to irrigate lawns or gardens.
