The Flint Water Crisis became a top story in 2016, but it wasn't the only development involving Michigan water or the Great Lakes. We review and update those stories, and look ahead to 2017, with Great Lakes journalist and commentator Gary Wilson.
This week, the Lansing Board of Water and Light will replace the last of Lansing’s lead water service lines. We talk with the Board’s general manager, Dick Peffley, about the multi-year, multi-million dollar project.
