Initial Meetup Location
Global Water Center

The active participation and cooperation of business, government, and civil society are all critical for ensuring better management and allocation of our shared water resources. It will take a coordinated effort among scientists and inventors, public utilities, regulatory agencies, nonprofit organizations, and rural and urban residents to solve water quality issues in our region.

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. Morning sessions will take place at the Global Water Center, with lunch and afternoon sessions to follow at the UW-Milwaukee School of Freshwater Sciences. Tours of both facilities will be part of the meeting.

Cost: $20
