Study Area Map

This is a map of the Kalamazoo River Project. This study was conducted on the main stem of the Kalamazoo River, which is located in southwestern Michigan. The Kalamazoo River is approximately 195 km long and flows northwest, entering Lake Michigan near Saugatuck, Michigan. In 1990, approximately 125 km (~80 mi) of the Kalamazoo River was designated a Superfund site (KRSS), referred to as the Kalamazoo River Area of Concern (KRAOC). The site extends from Morrow Dam in Kalamazoo County to Lake Michigan. As seen in the accompanying map the reference and study sites are highlighted. Data for all receptor species was collected from all reference and study area sites.
