UWM WATER Institute Partnering In Gulf Spill Science

Sandra McLellan, a professor at the UWM Great Lakes WATER Institute, is part of the team of scientists studying the effects on the food chain of the Gulf oil spill.

McLellan and the WATER Institute identified Milwaukee County stormwater discharge pipes as a key source of Lake Michigan beachfront e. coli contamination; without her work, plus donations from the MMSD, Sheldon Lubar and others, Milwaukee's signature public space - - Bradford Beach - - would not be the recreational and environmental success we now all enjoy.
