The Water Environment Federation (WEF) & World Business Chicago, in cooperation with the City of Chicago, the Metropolitan Water Reclamation District of Greater Chicago, and the Chicago Sisters Cities Initiative, will host this exclusive, one-day meeting to bring together water sector leaders for discussion of water related issues including technology and innovation, sustainability, investments in infrastructure projects, and partnering with the private sector.  The summit will be the latest in a series of dialogues examining case studies and engaging in discussion to distill lessons learned from leading cities and potentially change the agenda for other great water cities facing similar challenges.
