You are invited to a Chicago Community Trust On the Table 2016 Conversation: Standing Together Against Flooding. Join the Metropolitan Water Reclamation District of Greater Chicago, Chicago Wilderness, and the Wheeling Park District for lunch, a program, and walking tour of Heritage Park Flood Control Facility.

The discussion will focus on partnership opportunities to help address flooding. The MWRD is managing today's water by eliminating flooding through dynamic strategies that preserve our environment and improve water quality. As the increase in impermeable ground in Cook County meets and increase in significant rain events, local sewer systems do not always have the capacity to retain stormwater runoff. Given this challenge, the MWRD has sought new partnerships that focus on individual communities and lead toward broader solutions for the entire region. These initiatives in stormwater management and flood control are providing the local communities with instant benefits and creating new tools in the MWRD's pursuit of managing today's water needs.
