Yuba Creek Watershed

Yuba Creek watershed is the smallest subwatershed to Grand Traverse Bay covering just 8 square miles. It is adjacent to the Acme Creek watershed and located almost entirely in Acme Township, east of Traverse City.  Most of the land use in the Yuba Creek watershed is agriculture (30%) with a mix of pastures and orchards/vineyards.  Remaining watershed land uses are forested and nonforested (20% each) and urban (17%).  Yuba Creek currently has a significant amount of wetland land cover (13%) compared to other subwatersheds but has also lost about 48% of its original pre-settlement wetland land cover.
