MICHIGAN SITS AT THE HEART OF ALMOST 80 PERCENT OF OUR NATION’S FRESH WATER.
The Great Lakes have a profound impact on Michigan’s economy, health, and the very way of life for countless Michiganders. That’s why protecting our Great Lakes is vital to our state’s future.
Generations of Michigan kids have grown up playing on Great Lakes beaches, families across the state rely on our lakes to provide safe, clean water.
But today there is good reason to be concerned about the health of our lakes.
You might be an angler from Monroe who has watched as Lake Erie’s algae problem has grown and grown over the last decade—turning the shallowest Great Lake green with a thick algae sludge.
You might be a parent who looks forward to spending time with your kids and grand-kids playing on a Lake Michigan beach, only to be disappointed when E-coli or other contaminants make the water unsafe for swimming.
You might shudder at the thought of what would happen to Mackinac Island and the shores of Northern Michigan, if there were an oil spill under the Straits of Mackinac.
Michigan, the Great Lakes State, should be pushing forward with smart, pragmatic policies that can help protect and revive our lakes before lasting damage is done. It just takes political will to get the job done. That’s where Michigan LCV comes in and that’s where you come in.
Together we can leverage our influence in Lansing and across the state to protect our Great Lakes and all of us who rely on them. In this section you can find about recent victories and setbacks we’ve faced, as well as new opportunities to make a difference for the lakes we love:
