DNR Receives Over One Million Dollars for Water Project

More than one million dollars coming into the DNR.

They’ll use it to pay for projects on the water.

The Aquatic Habitat Grant Program doled out one and a quarter million dollars.

The money will be used across the state to pay for seven different projects that all have to do with water life.

From removing dams to improving habitats, the money will go toward rehabilitating michigan’s aquatic resources.

“It is a big deal. A lot of these projects you know they range anywhere from a few thousand dollars to a few hundred thousand dollars,” Cadillac DNR Unit Manager Scott Heitzelman said. 

Two of the projects are in Northern Michigan — in Otsego and Emmet counties.
