Clean Water

  • The Michigan Attorney General works to protect our unique water resources so Michigan’s citizens can rely on clean water for drinking, agriculture, industry, and recreation. 

    In addition to the work to protect the Great Lakes from invasive Asian carp, the Attorney General’s priorities include preventing the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency from imposing regulations that violate the Clean Water Act and illegally restrict Michigan’s economic development.
