Every Tuesday, Current State discusses the environment.
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.
