ANN ARBOR, MICH. (December 16, 2016) – The Healing Our Waters-Great Lakes Coalition today urged the incoming Trump Administration to follow through on its commitment to support federal restoration efforts of the Great Lakes, which supply drinking water to more than 30 million people in the eight-state region of Ohio, Michigan, Wisconsin, New York, Minnesota, Pennsylvania, Illinois and Indiana.
The Coalition delivered a plan for 2017 Great Lakes restoration to the Trump Administration that builds on the solid foundation that has been laid over the last 10 years by Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama, as well as Republican and Democratic leaders in the U.S. Congress. Read the plan here.
“The Trump Administration has a great opportunity to build on the bipartisan work of the last decade on behalf of the more than 30 million people who depend on the Great Lakes for their drinking water, jobs, and way of life,” said Todd Ambs, campaign director for the Healing Our Waters-Great Lakes Coalition. “Federal Great Lakes restoration investments are producing results, but we have more work to do.
