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. The program is made possible with support from the
Indiana University Strategic Directions Initiative, the law firm of Ice
Miller Donadio & Ryan, and the Indiana Department of Natural Resources.

and management. Guests on the program include:
