Forum To Discuss Problems With The Great Lakes

LANSING, Mich. (AP) - The head of Michigan's Office of the Great Lakes and other policymakers will discuss low water and other issues confronting the lakes during a forum Wednesday in Lansing.

Jon Allan leads the Great Lakes office, a branch of the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality. Joining him will be Michael Jones of Michigan State University's Quantitative Fisheries Center and Jennifer Read, deputy director of the University of Michigan Water Center.

Organizers say declining levels, questions about diverting water and related topics should be leading regional leaders to think differently about how the five freshwater seas are managed.

Wednesday's Forum begins at 11:30 a.m. in the Mackinac Room of the Anderson House Office Building. It's sponsored by Michigan State University's Institute for Public Policy and Social Research.
