High school student interested in Environmental Engineering?

I'm finishing up high school right now and I'm trying to figure out what I want to do and what college to go to. I'm very interested in Environmental Engineering. I would like to hear from people with that career. What got you interested in your career? What is a typical day like for you? What type of education/schooling would I need in college? What are some of the best colleges for Environmental Engineering? Can Environmental Engineering help in any other careers?

I live in Michigan right now, if that helps with anything. I'm not worried about going to college in a different state. Anywhere is fine with me. : )

Answers to any of these questions and/or any other information will be greatly appreciated. Thanks for the help!

    I am looking to be starting my undergraduate in environmental engineering next year, and I was interested in this as I wanted a career that is both certifying financially and also the feeling that I am contributing back to the world in a way I feel strongly about(the environment).

    I got a few info from University Collage London about their courses and the subject generally.

    A levels:

    AAA, one or more from Mathematics, Physics, Geography, Biology and Chemistry are welcomed but not required.

    A pass in a further subject at AS level or equivalent is required for all programmes

    IB Diploma:

    38 points, one or more from Mathematics, Physics, Geography, Biology and Chemistry at higher level are welcomed but not required.

    Their prospectus says the skills developed throughout the degree are applicable across a range of fields beyond engineering. I would recommend you order several prospectus from different Unis as they provide more details on their courses.
