Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy

Fresh on the heels of EGLE's Great Lakes Water Infrastructure Conference, join EGLE in celebrating Infrastructure Week!


Michiganders deserve clean drinking water as well as healthy lakes and streams. Quality infrastructure is the backbone to achieving that goal, and the needs are significant. Communities across the state need upgrades to their treatment plants, drinking water service lines, and sewer systems. But an essential component is ensuring affordability for residents – particularly those in underserved communities. Smart investments help ensure clean drinking water and healthy streams, lakes and groundwater within the state. They also strengthen the economy and workforce by creating jobs, improving health and quality of life, protecting the environment, enhancing tourism, and setting the stage for Michigan’s future success.
