The Great Lakes Restoration Initiative (GLRI) is bringing much optimism to the region, and recently scored another big win for the State of Michigan! Recently, the EPA announced the cleanup of the former Zephyr Oil Refinery site, a project totalling $16 million dollars. Toxic chemicals, blight, and various sediments were removed from the site. Placing of new soil and seeding, tree and flower planting are just some of the efforts by the state to restore natural wildlife habitats back to the location. The GLRI Fund, created in 2010, has utilized millions of dollars to tackle pressing issues in the region, such as toxic site cleanup, and invasive species projects. With the help of local and regional partners, Freshwater Future has worked to successfully advocate and secure support for the GLRI. Success stories like this fuel our mission to protect the Great Lakes. Read more about the latest GLRI success!
