Drinking Water Townhall - Ingham County

People across Michigan are wondering: Is my water safe to drink? Who can I trust for honest answers about my tap water? Why do my water bills keep going up?

We’re holding a drinking water town hall designed to answer your questions about drinking water quality, affordability and the policies that can keep your family safe.

Join Michigan Environmental Council; our host, State Senator Curtis Hertel, Jr.; Bill Haun of Ingham County Health Department; and Michigan League of Conservation Voters for a discussion on making our water safe and clean from source to tap.

Michigan Distilled - Royal Oak

We don’t want to talk trash, but Michigan’s recycling rate is abysmal -- 15% -- and one of the country’s worst. Why? The state has failed to make recycling a priority --  until now.

A new bill has been introduced at the State Capitol. If passed, it’d overhaul the way we handle garbage, emphasizing recycling and composting—and generating new green jobs.

Join MEC and our resident recycling expert, Sean Hammond, to learn more about the bill, how it’ll affect Southeast Michigan, and what you can do to help it pass.
