Vallier Lecture Series:

Lake Michigan Water Quality and You

-- MMSD Executive Director to Address Issues Surrounding Milwaukee's Water Quality --



MILWAUKEE, Wis. - Kevin Shafer, Executive Director of the Milwaukee Metropolitan Sewerage District, will talk about the many issues surrounding the quality of Lake Michigan water, followed by a question and answer period. The talk takes place at Schlitz Audubon Nature Center, 1111 E. Brown Deer Road, Bayside, Wednesday, January 19, at 7 p.m. Admission is $4 for FOSANC members and $5 for non-members.



Each and every one of us depends upon the water that comes from Lake Michigan. It is the chief source of Milwaukee-area drinking water and the final destination of all wastewater. We enjoy its sandy beaches and impressive wildlife.



Yet with each new year, there are more people living in the Milwaukee area who are needing more water. In addition, recent spring rains and the "deep tunnel project" have resulted in raw sewage being dumped into the lake, which has created much concern among local residents and elected officials. Kevin Shafer Executive Director of the Milwaukee Metropolitan Sewerage District will talk about the quality of Lake Michigan water and how MMSD plans to address the concerns of local residents regarding water quality. He will take questions from the audience following his talk.



Please join us for what is sure to be an enlightening evening. This will be the first of two lectures dealing with this important topic. The second will be in April featuring Dr. Jim Lubner of the Sea Grant Institute.

TIME: 7pm

FEE: $4 members, $5 non-members
