Editorial Reviews

Take Back the Lake is a film exploring how water quality impacts a community on Lake Michigan. In the film, we hear from Mark Kuether who returned from Florida to his home in Wisconsin to find how disturbed the water quality has become.

Experts and local residents talk about their experiences surrounding the water including beach use, drinking water, and recreation. Remarkable underwater footage is seen on how discolored and polluted Lake Michigan became after the June 2008 Midwest floods. Other discussion focuses on how controversial the Wisconsin DNR has become, paying too much attention to lobbyists in Madison, and operating as a bureaucracy instead of a true scientific agency.

The most notable milestone is Brian Backhaus and his dedication to bike across the country to raise money for Silver Lake, once the most polluted lake in the state of Wisconsin, particularly in terms of phosphorus.

Local residents and experts agree that more action needs to be taken to ensure water quality remains a clean, stable resource for their children for generations to come. They also find it's the individual who needs to speak up and do something about the problem. While many quickly point out lack of ambition for politicians to get more involved on contamination problems, others are mindful of basic things all can do to raise awareness and help everyone understand the value of water quality and Lake Michigan.

This product is manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media.'s standard return policy will apply.
