Water shortages forecast by 2020
Regional report says 12 townships may be vulnerable

By William Grady

June 26, 2001 - For much of the Chicago area, Lake Michigan is a security
blanket that wards off worries about water supplies. But some of the
region's faster-growing communities may be beyond the reach of lake water
and could face shortages in the future, according to a draft report from the
Northeastern Illinois Planning Commission.
