Innovative Stormwater Management at Liberty Golf Course

As Supervisor of Independence Township, Dale Stuart recognized that using a golf course for stormwater collection was a less expensive way of managing excess water.  He was also a member of our conservancy and so negotiated a joint easement on Liberty Golf Course to collect, infiltrate and direct rainwater from Spring Lake south to the wetland surrounding the Waterford Sportsman's Club and thence into Woodhull Lake, part of the Clinton River.  Augmenting this tributary to the Clinton River saved the township money while preserving a natural hydrologic feature of the landscape.
