Watch our "Weather Proof: Collaborative Stormwater Solutions" event live at noon!

Join us at noon (central) today for a live video stream of our roundtable on collaborative solutions to problems caused by stormwater.

While regulatory requirements and infrastructure systems often adhere to political and departmental borders, precipitation does not. The results are often fragmented decision-making and chronic stormwater issues like flooding and compromised water quality. And yet, the tools exist to collaborate effectively across borders on these vexing problems; where there's a collective will, there's a way. Solving our stormwater problems is a matter of scale, but also having unifying goals, a shared action agenda, and the right decision-making processes. Join us to explore what the Chicago region can learn from successful collaborative stormwater mitigation efforts elsewhere in the country.

Watch now! The video is streamed on YouTube and will also be recorded and available to watch after the event.
