Baseline Study on Fremont Lake & its Connecting Waterways

Former Project Manager: Nichol De Mol
 
The Fremont Lake Watershed is 12,300 acres in size and is located in the Brooks Creek subwatershed, which is part of the Muskegon River Watershed. With over 20 miles of streams and drains and 977 acres of lakes and ponds, the Fremont Lake Watershed is a significant resource in the community.

In 2008 the Fremont Area Community Foundation funded a proposal for The Fremont Lake Association and the City of Fremont to work with the Annis Water Resources Institute (AWRI) of Grand Valley State University to conduct a general assessment of water quality conditions in Fremont Lake and its connecting waterways. 

The goal of this project was to conduct a general assessment of water quality conditions in Fremont Lake and its connecting waterways. The following tasks were completed as part of this project:

  • Updated land use/land cover map for the Fremont Lake Watershed;

  • Sample site selection;

  • Sample nutrients at each study site;

  • Characterization of th phytoplankton and macrophyte communities;

  • Model pollutant loads in the Fremont Lake Watershed; and

  • Education of watershed stakeholders.

The information generated by this project can provide a baseline snapshot of the current conditions in the Fremont Lake Watershed, which will serve as a basis for future decision-making.
