Stabenow announces funds to protect Great Lakes

by

WASHINGTON, D.C. (WKZO) -- Senator Debbie Stabenow has announced that the USDA is offering up two-million dollars to preserve water quality in the Great Lakes. Specifically, those funds will be available for farmers and other partners in the Western Lake Erie Basin to encourage water quality protection by way of preventing soil and nutrition erosion.

Another one-million dollars is being provided by the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation to provide resources in the event of a water contamination crisis. The announcement of the funds follows a toxic algae bloom on Lake Erie that kept much of southeast Michigan from using tap water last month.
