Indiana is looking for groups to study the Great Lakes. The state Department of Environmental Management (IDEM) is giving out grants as part of the Great Lakes Air Deposition program (GLAD). The idea is to see where toxins are being deposited and understand how they adversely affect both human health and the ecosystem. State spokesman Scott Deloney says much of the focus of the study centers around the steel mills that dot the southern part of Lake Michigan. Deloney says toxic pollutants entering the air and water near those steel mills impact all of the Great Lakes. Private business, colleges and universities interested in grant funding have until August 10th to submit an application.
