Clean water at 50

Our 50th anniversary year isn’t just marking time. It’s a milestone of impact, progress, and opportunity.

March: Sparking change

Even before our creation in 1972, local and national events were shaping our future work and the responsibilities we would take on. Since then, our work has been extensive, expensive, and essential. We’ll talk about that history.

April: Healthier lake and streams

Our earliest days were heavily invested improving our treatment plants and expanding the system to best serve our region. Doing so began bringing life back to a once-dead river.

May: Recreation

As we welcome beach season, we’ll look more closely at the programs that have helped make our river and lakefront a destination — and how we plan to keep them that way.

June: Protecting our lake and streams

Our combined sewer overflow control work didn’t start with Project Clean Lake. But the consent decree was a manifestation of years of work and forethought. We’ll celebrate Project Clean Lake at its 10-year mark by visiting our latest project that reflects that commitment to purpose and precision.

July: Resilience

Managing a 400+ mile stream network comes down to understanding our environment’s past, present, and future. Our regional stormwater management program was years in the making, and we’ll examine how it’s helping our sewer and stream networks at the same time.

August: Community

As a regional utility, relationships are key. This month we’ll celebrate the ways we are advancing our clean-water mission with partners and customers together.
