WSU and several state university researchers embark upon 2-year, $150K study of beach muck

Researchers from multiple Michigan universities and agencies are embarking on a two-year, $150,000 study to better understand beach muck issues at the Bay City State Recreation Area. Donna Kashian, a professor of ecology at Wayne State University and lead researcher for the project, said that the survey is part of a wide range of work scientists and economists will undertake to better understand the beach issue over the next two years. Researchers from Wayne State University and Michigan State University, as well as other researchers, are set to team up to study the different dimensions of the beach muck problem and help identify paths forward to address it.
