THE STORY:

Please help FLOW (For Love of Water) continue to blaze the trail towards a new ecological paradigm. Our work targets the planet’s largest systemic problems affecting water and develops lasting solutions by reviving the ancient wisdom and laws of the public trust doctrine and commons.

FLOW's mobilizing idea is that the Great Lakes are a public commons—these waters belong to all of us and are owned by no one. This reality is confirmed by existing, but often ignored, public trust laws in the United States. These laws have been a cornerstone of Western civilization since the Roman Empire, and now they offer us a comprehensive blueprint to protect our waters in the 21st century.

Protecting and regenerating the health of the Great Lakes for current and future generations is more urgently needed than ever before. Unprecedented systemic problems threaten the Great Lakes, including invasive species, toxic pollution and dead zones from nutrient runoff, water diversions, climate change impacts, and failing water infrastructure systems.

Right now, FLOW is using the public trust doctrine to tackle the largest threats to the Great Lakes.

We are urgently pressing the State of Michigan to address twin aging oil pipelines known as “Line 5” in the heart of the Great Lakes. We helped prevent the State of Michigan from allowing open-pen fish farming in the middle of our lakes. We influenced the International Joint Commission’s overarching strategies on water diversions and exports in the Great Lakes Basin, as well as massive blooms of harmful algae fouling Lake Erie.
