The Great Lakes, along with our smaller lakes and rivers, provide all the freshwater we could ever need. While this water is plentiful, we depend just as much on the water providers and systems responsible for treating and delivering the water we drink, the water that falls, and the water we send down the drain.
The systems that treat our stormwater, wastewater, and drinking water are interrelated. It takes thousands of miles of pipes and a workforce of devoted professionals to cycle water out of our lakes and rivers, through our treatment plants, into our homes, back through wastewater treatment plants, and into our lakes and rivers again.
To keep our water fresh and flowing, it also takes a collective effort of everyone living in Washtenaw to be stewards of our water resources. During Great Lakes and Fresh Water Week and beyond, all residents are encouraged to support water resources with the following tips.
By raising awareness, we will inspire people to protect and be champions of the Great Lakes and freshwater. Our call to action is for residents around the state to learn about, enjoy, appreciate, and safeguard this vital resource for current and future generations.
