Establishing the Fund for Lake Michigan

In 2008, Clean Wisconsin helped to reach a settlement with the utility owners of the Elm Road Generating Station. Among other things, the settlement created a $96 million fund — the Fund for Lake Michigan — to protect the lake and improve water quality in the basin by funding on-the-ground restoration and applied research projects. Under the agreement, the utility owners will pay $4 million into the fund each year until 2035.
