Importance of Great Lakes Restoration Initiative Highlighted

This month, U.S. Senator Debbie Stabenow is highlighting Great Lakes Restoration Initiative (GLRI) success stories throughout Michigan and the importance of federal funding to protect the Michigan’s lakes and waterways.

Stabenow yesterday joined Steve Largent, Boardman River Program Coordinator and Trout Unlimited member, and Amy Beyer, Executive Director of the Conservation Resource Alliance, to highlight The Boardman: A River Reborn, a community project to restore the Boardman River.

The current phase of the project has received over eight million dollars through GLRI.

“One in five Michigan jobs are tied to water. It is more important than ever to continue investing in the health of our Great Lakes and waterways,” said Senator Stabenow, Co-Chair of the bipartisan Senate Great Lakes Task Force.

According to the University Research Corridor, more than 700,000 Michigan jobs, one in five in the state, are tied to water. GLRI is critical to cleaning up our Great Lakes, beaches, and waterways for swimming, boating and fishing.
