UM: Great Lakes

An article in the Detroit News looks at how federal dollars might be spent for cleanup in the Great Lakes. The article quotes Don Scavia, UM professor of natural resources, about the impact of fertilizers and other runoff: “It’s very distributed – street runoff, farm fields, lawns. And almost no regulatory programs are in place to control non-point sources, unlike pollution from plants. So it’s harder to manage and control.” [Source]
