Friends of the Rouge is leading the development of a 29-mile water trail on the Lower Rouge River. There are also shoreline property owners both residential and commercial who have few options when logjams encroach their property. There is a growing need for experienced woody debris management contractors. Urban waterways like the Rouge River can become littered with logjams. These logjams are a nuisance to paddlers, but woody debris also creates great habitat for fish and other wildlife. Clearing and opening logjams in an environmentally safe way is our aim.
