Associate Director of the Knight Center for Environmental Journalism and editor of Great Lakes Echo, David Poulson, discusses the collaboration between  Echo and Current State. This week’s segment features the 100- year study.

It’s been a century since the International Joint Commission conducted a Great Lakes wide bacteriological study.  Scientists are now looking to recreate the 1913 study. The 100 years study will assess how water quality in the Basin has changed over time. Lead researcher, Dr. Joan Rose, is the Nowlin Endowed Chair of Water Research, Co-Director of the Center for Water Sciences, and Co-Director of the Center for Advancing Microbial Risk Assessment at Michigan State University.  Dr. Rose discusses re-evaluating the Great Lakes.
