Turning the Tide is Turning Headlines Around the Region

Earlier this week, the Healing Our Waters Coalition released a report detailing the sewage crisis that the Great Lakes are facing due to our region’s antiquated sewer infrastructure. The Coalition held release events in five Great Lakes cities to announce the findings of the report, Turning the Tide: Invest in Wastewater Infrastructure to Create Jobs and Solve the Sewage Crisis in the Great Lakes and promote recommendations that would create jobs while making the Great Lakes healthy once more. The report calls on Congress to fund storm and waste water infrastructure improvement projects by investing $2.7 billion in the federal Clean Water State Revolving Fund. Listed below is a digest of news that the report has generated around the region:
