Water Watch Wisconsin, a joint project of the Wisconsin Center for Investigative Journalism, Wisconsin Public Radio and Wisconsin Public Television, is examining the quality and supply of Wisconsin's water, which is increasingly subjected to human and climatic influences. A guiding question, throughout the project: Is this trend sustainable? Water is one of Wisconsin's greatest treasures. The state is home to about 15,000 lakes, has more miles of Great Lakes coastline than any state except Michigan, and has underground reserves in four major aquifers.
