TOWN HALL MEETING: Water Concerns & Solutions

Thursday, November 29

Wayne County Community College Community Room 236
1001 West Fort Street; Detroit, MI

5:30pm Reception (refreshments provided)

6pm Water Town Hall Meeting

The Great Lakes hold one-fifth of the world*s freshwater supply and currently provide drinking water to over 42 million people. Yet each day, our Lakes are damaged economically and ecologically by untreated sewage, toxic pollution, and invasive species. Furthermore, residents fear water turnoffs. Unless we invest in a solution today, the price we pay tomorrow will be much higher and future generations may never experience our lakes and rivers as we know them.

Join us in being part of the solution!
