Annis Water Resources Institute
We get the latest on the happenings from the Annis Water Resource Institute. Executive Director Alan Steinman shares information on the Bob Annis posthumous award, the finding of invasive snail, and the Patricia Johnson Award.
Michigan’s Great Lakes are drawing more than 1,200 national flood hazard specialists for the Association of State Floodplain Managers Conference. We speak with executive director Chad Berginnis, Michigan Floodplain Manager, Roger Gardner and President of the Michigan Floodplan Association, Mark Walton.
The eight Great Lakes states will vote Tuesday on a request by the city of Waukesha, Wisconsin, to divert water from Lake Michigan.
All eight states have to agree to the request, and there are still a lot of questions remaining about the plan to withdraw millions of gallons from the Great Lakes to replace Waukesha’s radium-contaminated water supply.
If approved, this would be the first time a community outside the Great Lakes basin is allowed to divert water under the terms of a 2008 agreement.
