Federal agency awards $101,000 grant for researching long-term Great Lakes ecosystems health


TRAVERSE CITY, Michigan — The University of Michigan has received a $101,000 federal grant for a long-term study of how to protect Lake Huron and Lake Michigan ecosystems.

Democratic Sens. Debbie Stabenow and Carl Levin of Michigan say the funding was awarded by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's Great Lakes Research Laboratory.

It will support work by university scientists who collect data and analyze water quality, fisheries and other Great Lakes topics.

Stabenow says the grant will help researchers get a better picture of how the lakes are responding to changing environmental conditions and what needs to be done to preserve their ecosystems far into the future.
