Hanging in the Balance:Lake Michigan Mass Balance
A grant and contract summary of the Lake Michigan Mass
Balance(LMMB)<http://www.epa.gov/glnpo/lmmb/>study is now available online.
The chief goal of the LMMB study is to gather a well-established set of
scientific data in order to direct future toxic reduction endeavors from
regulatory agencies for Lake Michigan.

The summary information in this report was gathered from several sources.
The Great Lakes Program Project summaries were useful for an initial
collection of all Lake Michigan Mass Balance Grants from 1993 to 1997.
Detailed information was found in the corresponding grant and contract files
and Quality Assurance Plans in GLNPO=s Region 5 office.  The project
officers (PO) and principal investigators (PI) supplied helpful insights.

These grants and contracts cover the Mass Balance study from 1993 through
1997. Although sampling for the Project is complete, analysis and Quality
Assurance (QA) will continue until 1999.
