We all live in a watershed here in Michigan—an area of land that drains to a common body of water, such as a lake, river or stream (and even groundwater). The Village of Beverly Hills is committed to sharing resources on how to protect water quality in your own yard and beyond. Several of our partner organization website links are below that provide information on a range of topics - from minimizing water runoff to protecting the Rouge River. 

Alliance of Rouge Communities 
The Alliance of Rouge Communities (ARC), a 501(c)(3) Public Charity, is a voluntary public watershed entity currently comprised of 35 municipal governments, 3 counties, 3 educational institutions, and the Wayne County Airport Authority.
