Introduction

White Lake Area of ConcernWhite Lake is a 2,571-acre drowned river mouth situated along the shore of Lake Michigan in the west central portion of the state, in Muskegon County and is connected to the Lake Michigan by a federally maintained navigation channel. The White Lake Area of Concern boundary is described as White Lake proper and is located in Muskegon County. Historically, sediments in several areas of White Lake were contaminated with industrial discharges from leather processing and chemical companies. Nonpoint source discharges have also led to enrichment of the lake.
