      Welcome! Travel around this site to learn about who we are, what we do, why we do it, and how you can get involved. 
The White River rises from its headwaters deep in Newago County, flowing through streams and tributaries, finding its
way to the mouth of White Lake, and on to the end of its journey into Lake Michigan.  Discover more about this
remarkable, precious natural resource, and what you can do to preserve, protect and enjoy it!

           How's My Waterway:

           A Tool for Exploring Your Water Quality

      How's My Waterway provides information to the public about the condition of their local waters. 
     Collecting information from eight EPA databases, including contributions from states, federal, tribal
     and local agencies, HMW provides a comprehensive overview of water quality across the United States
     at the community, state and national levels.

     HMW can help users:
     *  explore information about their drinking water and local stream conditions
     *  determine whether local waterways are suitable for swimming or consuming fish caught in those               waters, and whether they support aquatic life
     *  discover if their waterways are being monitored for contaminants and the location of any local
         monitoring stations
     *  learn about other issues affecting their waterways, including restoration and protection efforts,
         impairments to water and discharge violations into local streams and rivers

    Click the White River Light Station for real-time views of White Lake Channel and Lake Michigan. The webcam is maintained courtesy of White Lake Association.

    Don't head out to swim, fish or boat before checking the forecast! Click the waves for instant access to weather conditions at the White River Light Station.

    You can learn the water levels on the lower White, just above Whitehall, by clicking on the ruler.  This service is courtesy of US Geological Service.
