Great Lakes Year in Review 2016
December 20, 2016 GLN Editor


The Flint Water Crisis became a top story in 2016, but it wasn’t the only development involving Michigan water or the Great Lakes. We review and update those stories, and look ahead to 2017, with Great Lakes journalist and commentator Gary Wilson.


Today, we take a look back at 2016’s biggest Great Lakes environmental stories with reporter/commentator, Gary Wilson.

Michigan was in the forefront of a number of those stories.  The Flint water crisis hit a tipping point, Great Lakes governors voted in a landmark decision to divert Lake Michigan water to Waukesha, Wisconsin and there will be a changing of the Great Lakes guard.
