The AHS is expected to cost $15 million. The cost of treating the Grand River and its tributaries with lampricide would be $1.9 million per year, in perpetuity. Thus, the AHS will pay for itself in less than a decade and will last at least 50 years. The Great Lakes Fishery Commission, which receives funds for the AHS from Congress and from the GLRI, will pay for the construction; no private funds are anticipated for the AHS portion of the Grand River Restoration project. The remainder of project funding for the Grand River Restoration Project will come a mix of local private donors and local, state, and federal sources. GRWW hopes to raise approximately $20 million from private resources and $10 million from state and local governmental resources.
