The Department of Environmental Quality, in cooperation with the Department of Natural Resources and Department of Information Technology, announced today the availability of the Michigan Surface Water Information Management (MiSWIM) system.
The MiSWIM system is a new, state-of-the-art Internet mapping application designed to provide the public easy access to water quality (biological, chemical, and physical) data and other information that has been obtained for Michigan’s rivers, lakes, and streams. Types of water quality information available to MiSWIM system users include: water and sediment chemistry, fish contaminants, E. coli bacteria, fish and aquatic macroinvertebrate communities, river flow, fish stocking, lake bathymetry, river valley segments, industrial and municipal wastewater discharge sites, septage land disposal sites, coldwater and natural river classifications, nonpoint source program grants, land use classifications, soil types, and aerial photographs.
