Making Democracy Work

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. Listen to the audio presentations. Depending on your browser and the app you use to listen to audio, you should find the "download" choice, possibly save or save-as the file and then open the file to listen. View the slides from the West Lafayette presentation as well as the Lafayette presentation.

Go to the City websites (Lafayette and West Lafayette) for additional information on these projects.
