Project Title & Description
Supplement Michigan's Targeted Response to Repair WLEB Health
This project supports the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative (GLRI) and the Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement, pursuant to Public Law 113-76. Building upon the existing GLRI-funded Michigan Agriculture Environmental Assurance Program (MAEAP), Michigan Department of Agriculture will fund the continued employment (for 3 years) of four experienced agricultural technicians to address harmful algal blooms (HABs) that have been occurring in the Western Lake Erie Basin (WLEB). These technicians will provide technical assistance to farmers, increase the implementation of conservation practices, and reduce the amount of sediment and phosphorus entering tributaries in the Western Lake Erie Basin watershed.
