The University of Wisconsin-Superior is receiving $5 million in federal funding as part of a five-year plan to speed up ballast water research and testing of new technologies to prevent the spread of invasive species in the Great Lakes.

Federal and congressional officials made the announcement on Tuesday at the university's facility in Superior, which is the only land-based facility in the Great Lakes region that tests ballast water treatment systems.
