Great Lakes Micro Pollution; Property Valuations; Statehouse Update

Featured Audio

Plastic, tons of it in tiny particles, floats around in Lake Erie, where concentrations are as high as some ocean pollution. Twenty-two million pounds of plastic flows into the Great Lakes each year.

What can a homeowner do if the valuation seems too high?
