Grand Traverse Band seeks money to remove dams
The Grand Traverse Band of Ottawa and Chippewa Indians is seeking $7.5 million in federal stimulus funds to remove dams on the Boardman River in Michigan.

The tribe wants to remove three dams and modify a fourth. The money for the project would come from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.

The dams are in city and county hands but local officials have already been discussing ways to remove them. The tribe decided to take action to meet a deadline to apply for stimulus funds.
