ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) - The Great Lakes Commission says it has awarded nearly $2 million worth of grants to 14 projects designed to reduce runoff of phosphorus and sediment into the region’s waters.

Two of the recipients are based in Michigan. They include the Hillsdale Conservation District and the Lenawee Conservation District. Both received about $200,000.

The projects were selected by the commission’s Great Lakes Sediment and Nutrient Reduction Program. It supports efforts by state and local agencies and nonprofit groups to undertake best-management practices that cut down runoff, which promotes growth of harmful algae blooms.
