MPC Roundtable—Weather Proof: Collaborative Stormwater Solutions

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.
Confirmed speakers:
Susan Harper, Public Engagement and Partnerships, Seattle Public Utilities
