Surveying Begins Tuesday on Midland County Rivers

October 29, 2021

River surveying will begin on Tuesday, November 2, to collect the necessary data for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) hydrologic/hydraulic study of the Tittabawassee River Watershed. This study is being sponsored locally by the County of Midland and the Midland Business Alliance (MBA) Advisory Committee on Infrastructure as part of the flood reduction project.

Area residents should be aware that surveying crews will be seen regularly around the rivers in the months ahead.

After a competitive bid process, the Spicer Group was awarded the contract for surveying and geographic information system (GIS) mapping of the Tittabawassee River, Sturgeon Creek, Snake Creek, Bullock Creek, Salt River, Chippewa River, and Pine River in Midland County. This data will be delivered to the USACE for the completion of the hydrologic/hydraulic study.

“This surveying is covering approximately 60 miles of waterway. It will take months and is expected to conclude by March 31, 2022,” said J.W. Fisher, co-chair of the MBA Advisory Committee on Infrastructure.

The contract was signed with the Spicer Group on Monday (October 25), and we’re excited that they will be in the field the next week,” said Lee Ann Keller, co-chair of the MBA Advisory Committee on Infrastructure. “We plan to post any updates to www.MBAmi.org/floodstudy and to the MBA Facebook page.”
