The Au Sable River Watershed Committee, formed in 1989, is dedicated to the restoration, improvement, maintenance and protection of the Au Sable River Watershed.

The committee develops and implements management plans approved by committee partners and initiates or assists partners and riparian land owners in projects and studies that keep with the watershed management plan.

Over twenty-five partner organizations and agencies signed on to the Partnership Agreement which was designed to remedy concerns with erosion, sand load and other threats to the quality of the river. Partners to the agreement pledged to provide leadership, engineering, technical planning, manpower, equipment and coordination. Partners' membership in the committee is open to all organizations and agencies dedicated to the mission of protecting the Au Sable River Watershed.
