Before the Wells Run Dry: Ensuring Sustainable Water Supplies for Illinois

Listen to audio

Listen to this recording of the Oct. 13, 2009, half-day forum, co-facilitated by Openlands and Metroplanning Planning Council, which examined recommendations for sustainable water supply planning. The event featured panel discussions on four topics paramount to Illinois' water future: reinventing infrastructure investment, linking land use planning and water supply analysis, spurring demand management solutions, and optimizing Illinois' Lake Michigan diversion.

The "Before the Wells Run Dry" forum was hosted by Drinker Biddle Gardner Carton and graciously sponsored by Illinois American Water and Christopher B. Burke Engineering.
