Fund For Lake Michigan

Restoring Water Quality in a Coastal Urban Lagoon Environment

  • Grant Recipient: Milwaukee County
  • Amount: $52,342
  • Year: 2020
  • Watershed: Lake Michigan Coast
  • Focus Area: Habitat Restoration

Milwaukee County will work with partners to launch a multi-year effort to improve water quality in the Veterans Park Lagoon in downtown Milwaukee. The park, which is a popular spot for boating, fishing, and dog-walking, has faced dangerously high levels of toxic algae in recent years. Identifying the source of the contamination will be the first step in making the park safe for visitors.
