AWWA Member Spotlight: Holly Gohlke, Gaylord, Mich.

Holly Gohlke of Gaylord, Mich., is the school and child care drinking water specialist with the Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes and Energy (EGLE). Michigan appropriated $4.5 million in 2016 to its Department of Education to reimburse schools for testing their water for lead, replacing fixtures, and purchasing filters. Gohlke helped administer the program through 2017 and EGLE has continued the School Drinking Water Program through federal grants and other funding. More information about communicating about testing for lead in schools, including an overview of AWWA’s new Lead Communications Guide and Toolkit, will be presented at the Dec. 2 webinar, Let’s Talk Lead: New LCRR Communications Tools to Strengthen Public Trust.
