Jacques Cousteau said the water cycle and the life cycle are one. Michigan is blessed to have 20% of the world’s fresh water in our Great Lakes Basin. It’s not only the source of drinking water, but it’s important to the wildlife and the earth’s geological system.
We must be good stewards of the Great Lakes. Yet, in the last administration, we’ve had constant threats to our waterways, tap water, ecosystems, groundwater, rivers, and lakes.
Michigan must pursue a goal to reduce contaminants in our waterways. It’s time to take care of our water resources. It’s time to save the Great Lakes.
