Manistique River AOC
Contact: John Riley 517-897-2398
The Manistique River flows from the northeast through Schoolcraft County in Michigan's central Upper Peninsula and discharges into Lake Michigan at the City of Manistique. The Manistique River Area of Concern upstream boundary begins at the dam in Manistique and extends downstream through the Manistique Harbor, a total length of approximately 1.7 miles. Historical impacts to the Manistique River are associated with wastes from a paper recycling facility (polychlorinated biphenyls from de-inking processes), sawmills, combined sewer overflows, and a municipal wastewater treatment plant.
