A three-year, $3.4 million plan is expected to restore natural features along five miles of Muskegon Lake's southern shoreline.

The Muskegon Chronicle reports the area being targeted was a historic dumping ground for sawmills and foundries. It extends from the mouth of the Muskegon River to the Muskegon Lake Channel into Lake Michigan.

The plan was announced Friday by the Great Lakes Commission and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

The Great Lakes Commission donated the first $50,000 for the project. Other federal funding is being sought.
