Great Lakes & Fresh Water Week Aug. 8-16th

The Southeast Michigan Council of Governments (SEMCOG) and the Southeast Michigan Partners for Clean Water along with Governor Whitmer and the Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy (EGLE) want to encourage Michigan residents to participate in Great Lakes And Fresh Water week from now until August 16th.

There is a lot to celebrate when it comes to Southeast Michigan’s abundant water resources, and there are several things we can all do to keep our waterways healthy and clean.

The One Water campaign sponsored by SEMCOG encourages public awareness of how cleaning up after your pet, properly disposing of fats, oils, and greases, and refraining from flushing disposable wipes can positively affect our water and sewer systems.
