Engaging future generations of water stewards, Michigan's actions to protect drinking water and the impact of high lake levels across the state are among the topics featured in the annual State of the Great Lakes report, released today by the Office of the Great Lakes (OGL) in conjunction with Great Lakes and Fresh Water Week.
The report looks at significant issues that affected the Great Lakes and Michigan's residents in 2019. It also recognizes accomplishments in protecting and restoring water resources for public use, recreation, fish and wildlife, and commerce.
"Michigan and its community partners are committed to supporting restoration efforts that will keep the Great Lakes fishable, swimmable and drinkable today and in the future," said Liesl Clark, director of the Michigan Department of the Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy (EGLE). "It's imperative that we continue to build collaborations to achieve significant water improvements for the benefit of generations to come."
