Spring 2019 Membership Meeting
Restoring the River of Pike
May 14, 2019
The Pike River flows through urban, suburban and rural landscapes and has an interesting story to tell. While the watershed was the first watershed in Wisconsin to receive an DNR/EPA-approved 9-Key Element Watershed Restoration Plan, work had already begun on 7 miles of stream corridor in Mount Pleasant.
Now, the local communities are working to balance the “Wisconn Valley” development, the largest foreign investment in U.S. history, while protecting past, present and future environmental investments. Learn from the stakeholders who have found — and continue to find — the “win-win” resiliency while networking with other practitioners along the way.

Join fellow LMS members in Milwaukee and meet with local entrepreneurs and researchers who are working on solutions to our local and regional water issues. The event is sponsored by our friends at raSmith, with support from: Stormwater Solutions Engineering, LLC and Southeastern Wisconsin Watersheds Trust, Inc.
