Although legislation and regulations have greatly reduced the direct input of contaminants into the Great Lakes, our valued water resources still receive pollution through atmospheric inputs, unintended releases, and non-point source pollution. With the added stresses of aquatic invasive species, the threats are compounded. Join UW–Madison’s James Hurley MS’84, PhD’88 as he discusses current and emerging water-quality issues affecting our inland seas and how scientists and stakeholders are working together to address them. Hurley is the director of the University of Wisconsin Sea Grant Water Resources Institute. He is also an associate professor of civil and environmental engineering and chair of the Environmental Chemistry and Technology Program.
