Great Lakes Water Infrastructure Conference

May 10, 2022 – May 11, 2022

8:30 am – 3:30 pm
Location: Online

Join the Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy (EGLE) for this conference focused on the water infrastructure challenges faced by the Great Lakes region and solutions to those challenges. Infrastructure is the unseen backbone supporting our modern lives, but investment has lagged nationwide and much of it is aging. The communities of the Great Lakes Basin face critical water infrastructure needs for rehabilitation and replacement. Shifting population patterns and the need for preparedness against man-made and natural threats place increasing demands on drinking water and wastewater utilities.

This conference will focus on sharing how Great Lakes states are addressing their water infrastructure challenges, imagining a better future, and mapping out how to get there.
