The recent scandal in Flint, Michigan, where residents were drinking water with dangerously high levels of lead, has raised new questions about the quality of America’s water supply.

In our part of the country, more than 40 million people get their drinking water from the Great Lakes. Should the people of Wisconsin be concerned with possible contaminants in our water?

On this edition of UWM Today, meet two water experts from the UW-Milwaukee School of Freshwater Sciences who have done significant research on water issues, professors Rebecca Klaper and Tim Grundl.

Tom Luljak hosted UWM Today on WUWM for more than two decades and is the inaugural host of Curious Campus.
