Issues of Environment and Sustainability

Environmental and Sustainability Committee Events

Jenny Leshner, Lafayette City Engineer, and Dave Henderson, West Lafayette Utility Director, provided an educational forum for the public about the Lafayette and West Lafayette Combined Sewer Overflow (CSO) projects. The event was well attended and all who attended learned about the progress being made in Tippecanoe County to protect the Wabash River. Go to the City websites (Lafayette and West Lafayette) for more information on these projects.
