Welcome to the LakesNeedWater newsletter January 2010 edition.

Crisis Update: A Call to Action

LakesNeedWater team members have been working on an analysis summarizing the key issues of the Lower Lakes crisis.  We realized that the website has so much information that a current analysis of the situation was needed.  Read our "Crisis Update: A Call to Action".  Comments are welcome. Please pass this report along to other interested people.
