Every community in the Aux Sable Creek watershed has ordinances regulating local development.  These ordinances impact the way new and re-development occurs in the watershed, which in turn impact the Aux Sable Creek. 

Integrating water quality into the ordinances is a recommendation of the 2009 watershed plan.  The use of multiple stormwater BMPs can help protect water quality. 

Following are links to electronically available ordinances for communities in or growing into the watershed:
