Clean Rivers, Clean Lake III
3rd Annual Watershed Planning Conference 

Sponsored by:
Milwaukee Metropolitan Sewerage District (MMSD) 
Southeastern Wisconsin Regional Planning Commission (SEWRPC).

Thursday, March 2, 2006
Italian Community Center
631 East Chicago Street
Milwaukee, WI 
8:15 a.m. to 4:45 p.m

For the past three years, MMSD and SEWRPC, partnering with the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (WDNR), U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA), local environmental organizations, and communities have worked on updating both the SEWRPC Regional Water Quality Management Plan for the Greater Milwaukee Watersheds and the MMSD 2020 Facilities Plan.  This third conference will feature that planning process, including presentations on 1) existing water quality conditions and sources of pollution in the Kinnickinnic, Menomonee, Milwaukee, and Root Rivers, and Oak Creek watersheds and 2) the preliminary alternative plans that have been developed by MMSD and SEWRPC with an early opportunity for you to comment.  The conference will include a look at watershed modeling, what it is and how it is used; inventory findings of instream and riparian habitat; information about water quality and the origins of pollution in our waterways; the magnitude, challenges and shared solutions integral to abating pollution; the complexity of water quality related issues; the costs of possible approaches to improve water quality; and, finally, the necessity of everyone working together to preserve the Greater Milwaukee Watersheds.
