"The Superior Watershed Partnership has made many improvements to our creeks and rivers that run through the City of Marquette and have completed many projects throughout the City. This is nothing short of why Marquette is a better place to live. I would like to thank the SWP for all the projects they have completed."
-- John DePetro, Marquette City Commissioner, June 2010
