Our Great Lakes Month in Review conversation examines the decision to allow Waukesha, Wisconsin to draw water from Lake Michigan, and a new federal law toughening pipeline standards.


The long-awaited decision about Waukesha water wasn't the only environmental story making news in June. In Washington, President Obama signed into law a measure creating stricter pipeline standards.

For this month’s Great Lakes Month in Review, Current State talks again with environmental journalist and commentator Gary Wilson.

This segment is supported by Michigan State University's Knight Center for Environmental Journalism. More news about the Great Lakes environment can be found at GreatLakesEcho.org and on Current State every Tuesday as part of our partnership.
