Troubled Waters


Troubled Waters is a reporting initiative that examined the impact of President Trump’s proposed budget cuts on the Great Lakes including his proposal to eliminate a $300 million restoration fund. To stretch the resources of Great Lakes Today, whose reporters are based in New York and Ohio, the RJC partnered with public radio stations in Minnesota, Wisconsin and Michigan. The result: a five-part radio series (run June 12-16) that highlighted threatened projects on each of the five Great Lakes.
