Submerged Logs Recovery

  • Great Lakes Submerged Logs Recovery Program

    The Submerged Lands Program staff administers the Part 326, Great Lakes Submerged Logs Recovery, of the NREPA (Part 326). This part became effective on July 10, 2000 and regulates the recovery of submerged logs from the Great Lakes bottomlands through a permit application review process. The purpose of this regulation is to provide for the legal and controlled recovery of abandoned old growth logs that were not captured and processed during Michigan's logging era.
