A recent MSNBC video report, "The World's Largest Fresh Water Resource Under Siege" ( http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/21134540/vp=31971212?) provides an excellent summary on the state of Great Lakes water resources and the Administration's $475M plan to more aggressively address the area's water quality issues. Immediately after this 2-minute 40-second video a 2 1/2-minute report on Great Lakes water quality research and student awareness training follows.
