The Ripple Effect: What We Can Learn From The Flint Water Crisis

Could Illinois towns experience the frightening problems with lead-polluted water that occurred in Flint, Michigan? How can similar health risks be detected or prevented?
Dr. Melissa Lenczewski will discuss water quality, how contaminants get into our drinking water and how they are removed. Dr. Eric Zeemering will discuss the roles and responsibilities of local governments in solving environmental problems. Join us for breakfast at our beautiful Lorado Taft campus to learn the mechanisms that exist for reducing or averting these disasters.
9:00-11:00 AM Talks by the experts and Q & A during breakfast
11:00 AM-12:00 Noon – Tour of Lorado Taft campus
Since Lorado Taft is not a restaurant, we will need to give them a heads up about the number of persons planning to attend. A buffet breakfast with Lorado Taft’s famous cinnamon rolls will be available for purchase for $10. Please email or call me at 779-777-7713 to let Judy know if you plan to attend.
The event itself is FREE and open to the public. It is not required to purchase breakfast.
