JDC LWV Receives More Recognition for Water Resource Management Plan
Here are two links to You Tube videos about the JDC LWV Water Resource Management Plan.
In a recent email sent by Sara Olson at the University of Illinois Prairie Institute she stated that this is an example of a “successful partnership between the Jo Daviess County League of Women Voters and PRI. JDC LWV sought expertise from ISGS and ISWS to bring science to the decision-making process, ultimately leading to development of a county-wide Water Resource Management Plan. This is a great example of impact to share with your contacts as well as a glowing endorsement of PRI.
