The webinar will highlight three significant topics of environmental importance:
Climate change – What is Michigan doing to address climate change and how you can help?
Drinking water – How does water get to your house and how do we make sure it’s safe to drink?
Contaminated properties – How do we clean up contaminated sites in Michigan and make them usable again?
