Senators announce funding for University of Michigan project

WASHINGTON, D.C. (WKZO) -- Senators Debbie Stabenow and Carl Levin say that a 177-thousand dollar grant for the University of Michigan will help develop models to protect Lake Erie from the effects of algal blooms. Senator Levin, chair of the Great Lakes Task Force, says that it's a battle that's been fought for years and that this summer's algae bloom on the lake proves the need for research.

enator Stabenow who is vice chair of the task force says that "This grant will help University of Michigan researchers better understand how to prevent future algal blooms like the bloom in Lake Erie that recently contaminated drinking water in Southeast Michigan."
