Over a year ago, the University of Minnesota released a study showing increased levels of triclosan in lakes across Minnesota. On Friday May 16th Governor Mark Dayton signed legislation making Minnesota the first state to ban triclosan in consumer products sold starting January 1st, 2017. 
In this edition of the Lake Superior Project, producer Kelly Schoenfelder explains more about what has happened since the study was released.
