A great place on a Great Lake is more than just a slogan when it comes to freshwater research and stewardship in Milwaukee.
The city has become an international destination for the study and development of freshwater innovations. Leading the development of this increasingly influential ecosystem are the University of Wisconsin- Milwaukee’s School of Freshwater Sciences and The Water Council.
While Milwaukee has an enviable supply of freshwater, it is not free from water woes. The city’s aging infrastructure is still rife with lead pipes, exposing a notable portion of the city’s population to contaminated water.
