Army Corps funds $226 million of Brandon Road project to keep invasive carp out of Lake Michigan

by staff

Plans for the $858 million project include a technology gauntlet — an electric barrier, underwater sound, an air bubble curtain and flushing lock — to stop carp from swimming to Lake Michigan. The prolific fish, able to reproduce rapidly and consume loads of plankton, threaten to transform ecosystems and harm the region’s $7 billion fishing industry.
