Preserving Water Sources

The Environmental Protection Agency’s Storm Water Phase II program is the next step in an effort to preserve, protect and improve the nation’s water resources from polluted storm water runoff. Municipalities in Berrien and Cass County, including the City of Niles, are working together with the Southwest Michigan Commission to plan for cleaner water and to educate residents about watersheds, water quality, and explain what you can do to ensure cleaner and safer water resources. 


The municipalities in Cass and Berrien Counties are working together to ensure cleaner and safer water in the Lower St. Joseph River Watershed. We will need your help, to learn more about these efforts visit
