Indiana Electronic Town Meeting on the Environment: WATER!

When Indiana became a state in 1816, it had a population of well under
100,000. Today, its population approaches 6 million-yet the state has the
same water resources as it had in 1816. Is there enough water to meet
Hoosiers' current and future needs? How are our water resources managed? Is
our water safe? Are floods inevitable? How can we balance our competing
needs for water?

Find out the answers to these questions and others during the "Indiana
Electronic Town Meeting on the Environment: WATER!," the latest in a series
of electronic town meetings sponsored by the Indiana University School of
Continuing Studies. Topics will include the amount of water in the state,
its quality, and its uses and management. The program will be taped on May
12, 1997, and will air on Indiana public television stations in late May
and early June. 
Questions will be answered by the following panel of environmental experts: 
*       Bill Beranek, president, Indiana Environmental Institute
