Michigan’s 14th Congressional District lies along the southwest shore of Lake St. Clair and the northern section of the Detroit River. The communities of this district are uniquely urban, yet intimately tied to the Great Lakes waterways that they border.
- Ice conditions and water levels influence decision-making, navigation, and commerce in the Port of Detroit, which is the largest seaport in the state of Michigan and the 5th largest US port in the Great Lakes.
- Communities feel the economic impact of invasive species like zebra and quagga mussels in the Detroit River and Lake St. Clair, and cannot afford further losses from a potential Asian carp invasion.
