On Friday May 6, the Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning (CMAP) will cohost a forum, “Groundwater Protection: Science, Planning, and Action,” with the Delta Institute from 9:00 a.m. to noon. One panel of speakers will address the state of the science as it relates to policy makers, planners, and water managers, and another panel will consider lessons learned, costs, and benefits of other state programs that are designed to protect groundwater resources. Elected officials, city managers, and public water suppliers are encouraged to attend this free event and learn how to improve their position regarding groundwater stewardship. Check for the agenda in CMAP’s Weekly Updates newsletter. RSVP to yambriz@cmap.illinois.gov.

IISG and CMAP work in partnership to develop and implement water supply planning in the Chicago region.
