As a father of four, Marty Durkan understands that clean water is vitally important to our families. The Great Lakes, and in particular Lake Michigan, provide drinking water to millions of people. This resource must be protected from contamination of all types. Marty will fight to ensure that our families have access to clean drinking water and that our wastewater is properly treated.

Marty will:

  • Educate residents on how they should properly dispose of different materials that could have a negative impact on our water supply.
  • Partner with other government agencies to crack down on businesses that dump harmful chemicals and substances in our water supply.
  • Work with local law enforcement to ensure that our water supply is safe from threats of contamination from outside sources.
  • Infrastructure improvements that make treating water safer and that keep them from entering the drinking water supply
