Measuring Great Lakes water quality today and a century ago
It’s been 100 years since the International Joint Commission conducted a Great Lakes-wide bacteriological study. Scientists are now looking to recreate the 1913 research; 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.
