SUPERIOR, WI — Wisconsin Senator Tammy Baldwin is working to secure additional funding aimed to restore the quality of water in the Great Lakes.

The Great Lakes Restoration Initiative is a bipartisan plan to improve the quality of the Great Lakes basin.

Senator Baldwin wants to secure an extra $9 million for the initiative.

The funds are used for habitat restoration and preventing invasive species in the Great Lakes.

Senator Baldwin says that some of the funding will also be used for fighting lake shore erosion.

“One of the things that’s really important to do with some of this Great Lakes Restoration Initiative funding is to make our shoreline more resilient from erosion,” said Baldwin.

Since 2010, the initiative has provided more than $2.5 billion to fund more than 4,000 projects.
