EVENT RESCHEDULED TO DECEMBER 1-3, 2020

Update: A decision will be made by the end of September as to whether or not the Great Lakes Water Infrastructure will be held as planned (Dec 1-3, 2020). We will update the EGLE Events page with any updates in early October and we will send a notification to all current registrants.


INFRASTRUCTURE – the pipes, pumps, wires, and technology – is the unseen backbone supporting our modern lives, but investment has lagged nationwide and much of it is aging. The communities of the Great Lakes Basin face critical water infrastructure needs for rehabilitation and replacement. Shifting population patterns and the need for preparedness against man-made and natural threats place increasing demands on drinking water and wastewater utilities. 

The 2020 Great Lakes Water Infrastructure Conference, a first-of-its-kind regional conference hosted by the Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy (EGLE), will identify the water infrastructure challenges faced by the Great Lakes region and discuss solutions to those challenges. Key topics will include funding and finance mechanisms, water affordability, environmental health, water infrastructure planning and reinvestment, innovative water quality solutions, green infrastructure techniques, cybersecurity strategy, and communications practices.
