Listen: Third Coast Conversations in Alpena

A diverse group of community members joined WCMU to discuss water issues at the Thunder Bay National Marine Sanctuary in Alpena.

Michigan's lakes and streams are in high demand, and users expect them to be refreshing and pristine. But what does the law say about who has access to water, and who is responsible for it?

This week on 'Third Coast Conversations,' we dig into the issues of rights, responsibility, and access to Michigan's water.

Portions of this program were recorded at the Thunder Bay National Marine Sanctuary in Alpena. WCMU's 'Third Coast Conversations' was funded in part by Michigan Humanities, and the National Endowment for the Humanities.
