LANSING, Mich. (AP) - The Michigan Department of Environmental Quality says that the state has awarded $91 million to 115 communities and agencies to make improvements to their sewage and stormwater treatment systems.

The state agency announced the grants of up $2 million on Tuesday. It says this is the second round of grants under the Stormwater, Asset Management, and Wastewater program.

The department says the latest grants are “further progress toward funding the complete list of 579” applicants.

Communities made their applications before a Dec. 2, 2013 deadline, and the total amounts they request exceeds the program’s $450 million in available funds.
