Consumers Energy/Resource Agencies Annual Steering Commitee Meeting

Region 3, April 11, 2014

The annual Steering Committee meeting was held April 11, 2014, at the Consumers' office in Lansing, Michigan. The Steering Committee was formed to provide oversight and to keep informed by the MMAC Team (Consumers/Resource Agencies) about the implementation of the 1994 Settlement Agreement. The Settlement covers 11 hydroelectric dams owned by Consumers on the Muskegon, Manistee and AuSable Rivers. Items discussed included the past and future projects that are funded through the Habitat Improvement Account, the budget, water quality and measures to improve water at the hydro site, recreation and nesting structures/wildlife habitat management. It was decided that the Steering Committee could meet biennially (instead of every year) and still accomplish the objectives of the meeting.
