Our Water in Peril

You are here

"Water, water, every where, nor any drop to drink" - let us hope the ancient mariner's verse will not apply to us 200 years later.

On Thursday, March 22, the League of Women Voters-Lake Forest/Lake Bluff, AAUW, and Lake Forest Open Lands Association co-sponsored the program "Our Water in Peril" to explain some of the water issues we face here in northeastern Illinois and in context to the worldwide plight. The three speakers were Judy Beck, Lake Michigan Manager, US EPA; Mike Adam, Senior Biologist, Lake County Health Department; and John Sentell, President, Lake Forest Open Lands Association.
