Moving on all fronts, Trump administration has several ways to affect environmental regulations and policy.
Great Lakes water diversion to Wisconsin city outside the Great Lakes Basin supported by science and the Great Lakes Compact.
Federal legislators try to insert weaker ballast discharge regulations into defense budget, which may pave the way for more invasive species in the Great Lakes.
Michigan's Legislators should consider the increasingly positive business case for supporting the state's Renewable Portfolio Standard before acting to roll it back or eliminate it outright.
Our access to drinking water is almost assumed, but how do we know it is safe?
Michigan, Ohio and Ontario work together to stop emission of contaminants that feed algae blooms in Lake Erie.
Federal court upholds Chesapeake Bay multi-state water quality regulations, which may be a model for future Great Lakes regulations.
The Michigan Department of Environmental Quality Office of the Great Lakes prepared a 30-year plan to harness and protect Michigan’s significant and valuable water resources
Supporters and opponents of fracking can all find something they like in the EPA’s draft report on its assessment on the effect of fracking on drinking water resources.
In a much anticipated rulemaking, EPA has defined what waters are regulated under the Clean Water Act, and not everyone is happy.
Detroit regional water system deal punctuates the need for regional cooperation and infrastructure investment, here and across the United States.
Certain industrial facilities need to develop plans to handle their potentially contaminated wastewater.
Local communities are responding to fracking by attempting to restrict the practice through the passage of ordinances, with inconsistent results.
The federal government invites public petitions, resulting in the absurd petitions like building a Star Wars style "Death Star" and deporting Justin Bieber, but EPA also seeks the public's opinion on disclosing the constituents of fracking chemicals.
