Historically, water law has been the province of lawyers and policymakers in the arid western United States. In recent years, however, lawmakers in the Great Lakes region have come to recognize the critical role that water management plays in securing a healthy and vibrant society over the long term.

In recognition of this development, the University of Toledo College of Law and its affiliated Legal Institute of the Great Lakes sponsor an annual conference on water issues of importance to the Great Lakes region and the nation. This year’s 9th Annual Great Lakes Water Conference will be held on November 13 at the University of Toledo College of Law.

Keynote speakers will be U.S. Congressman Bart Stupak of Michigan and Cameron Davis, Senior Advisor to the USEPA Administrator. The Ohio Environmental Council’s Kristy Meyer, Director of Agricultural & Clean Water Programs, and Ohio EPA Director Chris Korleski will discuss “Stimulating and Restoring the Great Lakes.” Other topics include “The Reach of the Clean Water Act” and “The Compact in Action.”
