At the end of each month, Current State checks in with Great Lakes commentator and journalist Gary Wilson for updates on environmental stories from around the basin. This month, we talk about a joint effort between Great Lakes states and Canadian provinces to reduce phosphorous runoff into Lake Erie and hear about the latest details on the Wisconsin town that’s applying to tap Lake Michigan for its drinking water.

This segment is supported by Michigan State University's Knight Center for Environmental Journalism. More news about the Great Lakes environment can be found at and on Current State every Tuesday as part of our partnership.
