EPA to award $475 million for Great Lakes projects

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency on Monday requested proposals for projects to clean up the Great Lakes.

The EPA received $475 million as part of the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative, and most of the money is to be awarded through this request for proposals process.

The agency is asking local public and private organizations to submit plans for projects to remove toxic substances from the Great Lakes, remove invasive species, eliminate pollution from runoff and other non-point sources, and protect the lakes’ habitat and wildlife.

Proposals are due to the agency by Jan. 29, 2010.
