It’s been a while! But I got back recently from an Institute for Journalism and Natural Resources fellowship and thought I would share a few photos from the trip around Lake Erie.
The topic was drinking water and the threats it faces in the basin from pollution, eroding confidence in public utilities, plastic pollution and ageing infrastructure.
I’ll post the stories that come out of the fellowship—should be live at Alternatives Journal in the next month or two.
Reporters near Toledo, OH learning about farmer’s voluntary efforts to keep phosphorous from entering Lake Erie’s western basin.
Cleveland’s brand new wastewater treatment facility.
The halls of Toledo, OH’s drinking water treatment plant.
Reporters near Guelph, ON meet with hydrologists from Nestle about groundwater taking in Southern Ontario.
