2017 Flint Water Infrastructure Summit: A National Conversation
Co-Sponsored by the City of Flint and the State of Michigan
March 7-9, 2017 in Flint, MI
The goal of the Summit is to highlight water infrastructure issues in cities where populations have declined, share lessons learned from the City of Flint, and propose solutions with a focus on new technologies. The Summit will help identify infrastructure solutions that may be applied in the City of Flint and other similar communities, and address the broader initiatives of Governor Rick Snyder’s 21st Century Infrastructure Commission; specifically, to identify sustainable, strategic, and affordable approaches to addressing statewide infrastructure needs.
The Summit will include over 30 breakout sessions focusing on a variety of topics, including system design, operations, and management; technology and innovation; data and analytics; public health interface; and, community engagement. Day one of the Summit will be kick off with opening remarks from Governor Rick Snyder and Flint Mayor Karen Weaver, followed by keynote addresses and a reception. Day two will start with a keynote and then move to breakout sessions. There will be several breaks and times offered to network and visit exhibits, including two evening receptions.
