TRAVERSE CITY, Mich. (AP) — A federal grant will enable University of Michigan scientists to study how climate change affects water quality and water levels in the Great Lakes.
U.S. Sens. Carl Levin and Debbie Stabenow of Michigan say the $321,448 grant was awarded by a research arm of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
It will go to the university's Cooperative Institute for Limnology and Ecosystems Research through the School of Natural Resources and Environment.
Stabenow says the studies will provide information that will help protect the lakes and preserve them for future generations.
