The summit will begin with presentations on invasive-species transfer, wastewater management, flood control, and navigation and shipping. Participants will devise a work plan for preventing further environmental degradation and impacts on marine-related industries in the two basins. Mayor Daley and Chicago’s Department of Environment, along with William F. Hartwig, regional director of the US Fish and Wildlife Service are expected to be on hand for the summit.
