07-Jan-2018

Northern Michigan’s picturesque Grand Traverse Bay will receive $1,589,664 in funding thanks to the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative (GLRI). U.S. Senators Gary Peters and Debbie Stabenow announced that the GLRI will fund three projects in Grand Traverse Bay to protect against invasive species and improve water quality. 

The Nature Conservancy will receive a $550,070 grant to remove invasive species that harm native fish populations. The Grand Traverse Conservation District will receive a $539,605 grant to improve water quality by preventing the spread of invasive plant species in northwest Michigan. The Watershed Center of Grand Traverse Bay will receive a $499,989 grant to improve water quality in nearby Kids Creek, which flows to Lake Michigan. The project is expected to capture and treat approximately 177 million gallons of storm water per year.
