The SOUND OFF Podcast: A Conversation about Protecting the Indiana Lakeshore

(LAPORTE, IN) - It's Monday! It's time to SOUND OFF in a conversation on the environmental regulation of Lake Michigan.


At the end of September, US Steel discharged a significant amount of iron into the waters of Lake Michigan, a body of water that provides drinking water for 7 million people. In addition, in 2017, 300 pounds of hexavalent chromium was spilled into Lake Michigan. As a result, many residents call for the state and federal government to better regulate and punish corporations that use Lake Michigan's water.


What do you think? Should the government do a better job protecting the Indiana lakeshore and the waters of Lake Michigan? Listen to the full episode below:
