WATER RESILIENCE IN GOOD TIMES & BAD | Water affordability in northeastern Illinois: Trends, policies, and a path forward

The Metropolitan Planning Council, Natural Resources Defense Council, and Elevate Energy got together on May 12th for a discussion about water rate affordability in Illinois, the challenges associated with water shutoffs and reconnections, what’s happening in Illinois and neighboring states, and how to avoid these issues altogether in the future.

Check out the livestream recap of the second event of the series in case you missed out. You can also view the recap for two related events from May 5th, and May 19th about how to ensure Illinois’ water resilience, now and post-COVID-19.
