The Clinton River watershed covers 760 square miles through
four counties (Macomb, Oakland, Lapeer, and St. Clair). From
its headwaters in Springfield Township, the Clinton River travels
80 miles and eventually empties into Lake St. Clair in Harrison
Township. Over 1.4 million people live in the watershed's 60
communities. The CRWC is a non-profit environmental organization
that protects, enhances, and celebrates the Clinton River, its
watershed, and Lake St. Clair.
