Clean up Great Lakes

Barack Obama pledges $475 million for next year
Cleaning up toxic substances and "areas of concern": $146.9 million, or 31 percent. The EPA will control most of the spending ($113.9 million), reducing toxins, including PCBs, mercury, dioxin and pesticides. The Army Corps of Engineers will get another $10 million for this task, and with other agencies will help remove contaminated sediment and other industrial pollution that hampers places like the Cuyahoga and Ashtabula rivers and Lake Erie harbors.
