U.S. Sen. Carl Levin, D-Mich., said the assistant Army secretary for public works told him Wednesday that the money will cover work at six harbors in Michigan — New Buffalo, Holland, Muskegon, Saugatuck, South Haven and St. Joseph.

Aid also goes to Illinois' Waukegan harbor and Indiana's Burns Waterway, Burns Waterway Small Boat, and Michigan City harbors.

Levin said Jo-Ellen Darcy told him the work is part of $19 million in hurricane recovery funds being used for work on the Great Lakes.

Congress in January approved emergency Hurricane Sandy relief funds. Levin said the Great Lakes sustained millions in storm damage.
