Rochester Hills — About $20 million is expected over the next three years for 11 projects through the Clinton River watershed in southeastern Michigan.

The Clinton River Public Advisory Council says the money is for work in the watershed along the Clinton River, its tributaries and the mouth of Lake St. Clair.

The projects are for fish and wildlife habitat restoration as part of the Environmental Protection Agency’s Area of Concern Program throughout the Great Lakes. The Clinton River Watershed Council and the Office of the Great Lakes also are involved.

The work hopes to address issues such as the loss of fish and wildlife habitat as well as the degradation of fish and wildlife populations.
