GLC Wants Pre-Proposals For Air Deposition Projects

Mar 15: The Great Lakes Commission (GLC) is requesting pre-proposals by April 16, 2010, to support the Great Lakes Air Deposition (GLAD) program for 2010. The purpose of the GLAD program is to safeguard the environment and human health from the adverse effects of atmospherically deposited toxic contaminants in the Great Lakes region. The program supports scientific investigation and the development of assessment tools to identify the magnitude, sources and impacts of toxic contaminant deposition within the region and to facilitate concerted and strategic actions to mitigate such impacts.

    Proposals should focus on contaminants of concern for atmospheric deposition in the Great Lakes region and should demonstrate a likelihood that the contaminant(s) being examined are depositing to the region's waterways from the atmosphere in a quantity that may cause adverse impacts to humans or wildlife.  Proposals must describe tangible benefits delivered to the Great Lakes states and how projects will assist the state agencies and their partners in taking informed actions toward assessing and reducing the occurrence and impact of atmospheric deposition of toxic substances. The 2010 Request for Pre-Proposals identifies priority project areas that are specifically targeted for the upcoming year.
