December 29 Cleanup Progress

Winter cleanup work continues along the Talmadge Creek and Kalamazoo River. These efforts are focused on wetland and bank areas as conditions allow, especially where frozen conditions allow for better access in sensitive areas. Boom will continue to be used as allowed by icy conditions on the river, although the chevron boom at Morrow Lake was removed earlier this month for the winter.

Boom and a sediment filter remain in place at the confluence of the Talmadge Creek and the Kalamazoo River despite ice and snow.Equipment remains on the shore of the Kalamazoo River near Heather Drive in Marshall where boom runs between a small island and the river bank.Monitoring continues along the river during the winter months.Boom remains at a wetland pool near 11 Mile Road.Southeast of Interstate 94, a creek is seperated from the Kalamazoo River with a line of boom.Near Crest Avenue in Battle Creek, a wetland area is maintained and monitored.A portion of the Kalamazoo River remains open near Beadle Lake Road in Battle Creek.Workers are seen near a line of boom west of downtown Battle Creek near Limit Street.The delta at Morrow Lake has frozen but is continually monitored.At Morrow Lake, boom was been removed as ice formed on the lake's surface.
