Illinois Water Day

Water & the Built Environment:
What are the pros and cons of water infrastructure? Are dams considered “sustainable” in the triple-bottom sense (environmental, social, and economic aspects)? What are present and future challenges we face to sustainably manage infrastructure? What new technologies, research and innovations are needed to tackle these challenges?

We will show a feature film, “Damnation,” as well as a short preview of the film “Liquid Assets.” These films will be followed by intriguing trivia and round-table discussions on the films’ implications. The event will finalize with a poster session: our goal is to have about 20 research posters on water related topics.
