Michigan, which sits in the middle of one-fifth of the Earth’s surface freshwater and has a higher percentage of surface water than any other American state, has experienced a spate of water related issues in the past few years – from the 2014 Flint water crisis to the Detroit municipality water shutoffs amid a recent announcement from Nestle that it will be increasing the amount of water it bottles and sells from the state. Joining the show today to discuss the current status of these issues and what can be done to help ensure the future availabilty of this precious natural resource is Nick Schroeck, and Environmental Law professor and the Director of the Transnational Environmental Law Clinic at Wayne State University Law School in Detroit.
