Lake Michigan's Health Report
We enjoy the beauty of our lake and its beaches. But are toxic chemicals and invasive species threatening its health? Is low water level constricting recreation and ruining the fishing? What's the health status of Lake Michigan, Eastern Wisconsin's defining feature? And what steps can be taken to sustain and repair our Great Lake?
With host Marcus White, Vice President of Community Partnerships, Greater Milwaukee Foundation and with guests CARMEN AGUILAR, PhD, Water Scientist School of Freshwater Sciences, UW-Milwaukee; KENNETH JOHNSON, DNR WI Water Division Administrator and Great Lakes Commission Chair; and MELISSA MALOTT, JD, Water Program Director, Clean Wisconsin
