Hosted by the Students & Young Professionals Committee
|Saturday, October 5, 2013
Bus departs 8:30 am from the Hilton Chicago, 720 S Michigan Ave
Plans are being made for the 6th WEF Community Service Project to be held at WEFTEC 2013 in Chicago. Thius year's project, "Reading, Writing, and Rain Gardens", will consist of replacing concrete with green infrastructure on the playground at Haines Elementary in Chicago's Chinatown neighborhood. The tress and rain garden will help relieve runoff from urban flooding and reduce heat island effect in a critical public space for students. Locating the project at a aschool helps us increase the awareness of the value of water with impressionable young minds. We hope to inspire studetns to the cause of clean water, underscore the importance of the wate profession, and demonstrate to the community how to get started on clean water initiatives.
