Issues of the Environment
Weekly radio show that airs each Wednesday at 8:20am.
- Wednesday, August 26: Susan Bryan, Rain Garden Coordinator for the Washtenaw County Water Resources Office, will discuss how Washtenaw County encourages the installation of rain gardens to capture stormwater runoff before it pollutes our local rivers. Susan will highlight the success of the raingardens program and talk about the sizable grant received by the county. She will also discuss the maintenance needs of these gardens that have become popular in Ann Arbor and how volunteers are needed.

The Green Room

Things are moving fast in the world of driverless cars. What does this technology mean for the environment? In this installment of WEMU’s "The Green Room," Barbara Lucas takes a look.
