Marquette, MI – (Great Lakes Radio News) – The federal Great Lakes Restoration Initiative will dedicate over $300-thousand to reduce pollution and improve water quality in two U.P. rivers.

The EPA program will allocate $330,403 to ensure healthy stream banks and natural habitats along the Salmon-Trout and Dead Rivers, which run into Lake Superior.

The “Lake Superior: Urban and Rural Watershed Restoration” project is one of seven Michigan projects to receive a total of more than $5.7 million in funds.

The Superior Watershed Partnership’s Great Lakes Conservation Corps will conduct the restoration work.

The project will also integrate K-12 classroom and hands-on education through the Upper Great Lakes Stewardship Initiative.
