With the algae blooms making water supplies dangerous around the Great Lakes, water shutoffs in Detroit, and unsanitary water supplies in other Michigan and Ohio cities, I couldn’t help thinking about resource scarcity and abundance.
Humans are extracting ever last bit out of this earth from oil to minerals and metals. Yet we are not taking care of the most critical resources to our own existence.
Comparison of Detroit Water Accounts, Amounts, and Average Owed
I worked with the People’s Water Board and Allied Media Projects to produce this graphic to compare where the Detroit Water and Sewerage Department (DWSD) was targeting and more so where they were misdirecting efforts.
I was approached by ModeShift, project of the Community Foundation of Southeast Michigan (CFSEM), to develop some visual infographics based on the polls that they run on their website. Most of them were very bicycle focused and made some fun data and graphics.
