Deep Threats to Our Sixth Great Lake: Spotlighting and Solving Michigan’s Groundwater Emergency

March 10 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm


Out of sight and therefore out of mind, Michigan’s groundwater faces deep threats, including contamination in thousands of places by everything from failing septic systems to industrial chemicals. A Zoom webinar hosted by FLOW on Wednesday, March 10, from noon to 1:00 p.m. EST, will provide insight and commentary on the state of Michigan’s groundwater and what can be done to better protect the source of drinking water for 45% of Michigan’s population.

FLOW Senior Advisor Dave Dempsey will discuss FLOW’s new report, “Deep Threats to our Sixth Great Lake.” The second of FLOW’s reports on Michigan groundwater, “Deep Threats” proposes a Groundwater Protection Act as a remedy to the widespread contamination of this vital resource.

In addition, co-presenters — Carrie Jennings, Policy and Research Director for the Freshwater Society and Dr. Alan Steinman, the Allen and Helen Hunting Director of the Robert B. Annis Water Research Institute at Grand Valley State University — will make presentations on critical issues related to groundwater quality and quantity.
