WHAT’S IN A NAME?
The native Huron-Petun (later known as Wyandot)
people referred to Lake Huron as Karegnondi,
translated as “big lake.” Cartographer Nicolas
Sanson’s 1656 map of the territory bears that name
for the “fresh water sea” encountered by French
explorers. Karegnondi bridges the centuries to
honor that early heritage.

Karegnondi Pipeline for Macomb and Oakland Counties
might be the ticket away from reliance on DWSD.
