Shared Waters:

Chicago, Gary, Milwaukee & St. Louis

Tuesday February 18, 2014 - 6pm

While “Chicagoland” is intended to encompass the larger metropolitan area “anchored” by Chicago, water issues increasingly complexify this centralized diagram. Increasingly, challenges and innovations are tackled in parallel across various nodes in a network. As water connects Chicago to increasingly larger systems, it also connects the city to a network of other cities grappling with similar issues. Experts from Chicago, Gary, Milwaukee, and St. Louis will discuss issues that affect these metropolises through shared waters.
