Alternate Water Source Studies

Alternate Water Source Studies

Various Communities, Illinois

EEI has worked with multiple communities to evaluate water supply options from a variety of sources. EEI has evaluated the long-term sustainability of groundwater systems, the potential to connect to Lake Michigan supplied systems, and withdrawal from inland surface waters. The studies often include multiple alternative analyses, and facilitated discussions between the decision-makers.
