Have you noticed that the Detroit River is rising? Like other parts of the Great Lakes system, its high level is threatening homes, businesses and natural areas.
In this “watch party,” originally broadcast on Facebook on December 4, 2020, Jacqueline Serran, the remedial action plan coordinator with the Detroit River Canadian Clean Up, WDET’s Annamarie Sysling and Great Lakes Now Program Director Sandra Svoboda chat about how the high water levels are impacting habitat and communities along the Detroit River in Canada and the United States, and answer Facebook audience questions.
This Watch Party was co-hosted by Great Lakes Now at Detroit Public Television, Belle Isle Conservancy and WDET-101.9 FM.
