The Rouge River National Wet Weather Demonstration Project (Rouge Project) is a working example of how a systematic watershed approach to pollution management can result in cost-effective and ultimately greater and faster achievement of designated uses in a water body. The Rouge Project was initiated in 1992 by Wayne County, Michigan. This cooperative effort between federal, state and local agencies was supported through June 2014 by over $350,000,000 in multi-year federal grants from the United States Environmental Protection Agency with additional funding from local communities and other stakeholders.
