The McBride Drain Habitat Restoration was the collaboration of the Macomb County Public Works Commissioner, the EPA, GLRI and HRC. The enhancement and restoration of the McBride Drain enabled the stream to acquire and sustain a variety of aquatic and diverse vegetation. The stabilization of the streambanks and in-stream structures further improved the hydrology of the stream and created aquatic and habitat improvements.
The McBride Drain runs directly through a residential neighborhood. These improvements improved the quality of life and reduced flooding to the adjacent yards.
