Project Milwaukee: In-depth reporting on vital issues in the region.

Tuesday on Lake Effect: Project Milwaukee Live At The Cooperage

Tuesday on Lake Effect:

We’re live from the Cooperage in Milwaukee’s Harbor District for a special broadcast - part of our Project Milwaukee series, Great Lakes, Troubled Waters.

We explore some of the emerging threats to water in our region - from pharmaceuticals to invasive species. We discuss some of the shortcomings to water policy - at the state, regional, and national level. A conversation about the real-world health impacts of unsafe drinking water… plus, we find out whether the region’s water technology industry might play a role in help solving problems at a local level.
