OSHKOSH, Wis. (AP) — The University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh has received a federal grant worth more than $1 million toward an ongoing Great Lakes restoration project.
The overall project is designed to improve water quality by identifying pollution sources. It also aims to protect public health at Great Lakes beaches by quickly identifying bacterial contamination.
The grant announced Friday will help the university collaborate with the city of Racine Health Department.
The money comes from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. It’s the agency’s fourth grant in two years for UW-Oshkosh.
