Not a Drop to Drink? -- 6-11-20 FREE -- Great Lakes Threats and Strategies for Protection and Restoration
Laura Rubin, Director, Healing Our Waters-Great Lakes Coalition The Great Lakes region has a strong restoration plan that has secured over $3.1 billion dollars in federal funds to clean up toxic pollution that poses a threat to people and wildlife, reduce polluted runoff that causes harmful algal blooms that poison drinking water, stop invasive species that harm fish and wildlife and outdoor recreation, and reverse habitat destruction that harm the environment and hurt the economy. Federal investments are producing results in communities across an eight-state region. But serious threats remain, and the Healing Our Waters—Great Lakes Coalition is continuing to advocate for solutions that protect our drinking water, jobs, and way of life. Laura Rubin has spent more than 30 years working on environmental protection, policy, and conservation issues. She is currently the Director of the Healing Our Waters—Great Lakes Coalition, which has been harnessing the collective power of more than 160 groups representing millions of people, whose common goal is to restore and protect the Great Lakes. The Coalition has earned a well-deserved reputation as a national leader in securing federal investment in regional ecosystem restoration efforts.
