Water is getting less affordable over time for Michiganders across race and geography. We discussed the problem and the solutions.
Public health begins and ends with clean water. People must have access to safe drinking water to survive and access to sanitation to prevent disease. But challenges with water and sewer service affordability impact people throughout Michigan, across geography and demographics. And water is getting less affordable over time. During this session, we will talk with local experts and leaders about the findings of the Michigan Statewide Water Affordability Assessment, what policy measures are being considered to help key water affordable, and how climate change will impact water affordability in the future.
