This Week 7-10-23: The Future of Our Lakes



WELCOME NEW MEMBERS! Congratulations to our new Ambassadors and say “hello” to our newest members: Larry Steker (Illinois), Russell Reder (Illinois), Doug Grier (Illinois), Cindy Johnson (Wisconsin)

WHO TO KNOW: The Members of Global Water Works Lake Life: Prevent and Remediate HABs work space are focused on eradicating the pollution contributing to hypoxia and harmful algal blooms in our lakes. Read the FAQ to understand the drivers and processes in place to eliminate the nutrient pollution and restore the natural food web in our lakes and water bodies.

THIS WEEK’S POLL: It’s Lake Appreciation Month. We invite you to share your favorite lake experience. Why do you appreciate lakes? Says Sally Wenczel, a camping trip alongside Lake Superior brings to mind the value of a lake in sustaining the life around it. Other experiences we enjoy included walking around a favorite lake at a park, and photographing lakes.

THE WONDER OF WATER: ABC News digital explores the Power of Water and what’s happening to water from different lenses. Effects from business to residential to sea level rise, and what the government is doing to protect the most precious commodity on Earth are examined.

TECH TALK: As we consider the future of lakes, we’re thrilled to share a means to restore the 40% of waterbodies impaired by nutrient pollution. Learn about the renewable water cycle, and how a multi-level process can enable our lakes and water bodies to process the heavy load of nutrients flowing into them.

FUN WITH WATER: The mighty Mississippi River inspired the creators of the River Museum to showcase the transportation, ecology and history of rivers. If you’re not able to visit in person, we invite you to take the virtual tour at the River Museum.

GREAT SUMMERTIME READ: Ripple Effects How We’re Loving Our Lakes to Death by Ted Rulseh comes highly recommended. The book explores the science of human impact on our lakes.
