Monday on Lake Effect: Defining Pure Water, 2019 Year of Clean Drinking Water, 'Milwaukee Noir'

Monday on Lake Effect

We kick off our Project Milwaukee series on clean water by asking if we need to redefine our image of “pure." Then, why Gov. Tony Evers declared 2019 "the year of clean drinking water" in Wisconsin. We learn how perceptions affect whether people drink water from the tap. Plus, the joys of writing noir fiction using Milwaukee as the city that never sleeps.
