Introducing SEMCOG’s newly revised water quality tip cards
Often, as I visit local community offices around Southeast Michigan, I’m greeted with a familiar sight of our water quality campaign on display. The Our Water. Our Future. Ours to Protect. messages have been used throughout the region and the country to let the public know of actions they can take to protect our rivers and lakes.
