The Friends of the Cuddy Drain is a volunteer group of “Water Watchdogs” dedicated to keeping this little historical creek healthy and safe for its residents, both animal and human. We’re a work-in-progress, so expect to see lots of changes as we grow!
Our MAIN GOALS:
To minimize large woody debris that can dam up and create flooding; offers an organic base for fecal pathogens to thrive; and poses a navigational hazard to boaters in the Cuddy Channel and on Gun Lake.
Limit erosion and the resulting sand and sediments that fills in the drain and the channel; provides safe harbor for pathogens; and is costly for residents to remove.
To attain these goals, we’ll work hand-in-hand with State, County and Township officials, and members of regulatory agencies like the DEQ, to provide accurate information and situational monitoring.
