GBF talked to David A. Ullrich, the Executive Director of the Great Lakes St.Lawrence Cities Initiative for an update on the activities of the Chicago Area Waterway System (CAWS) Advisory Committee, whose members have met since 2014. The Committee includes representatives from 30 public and private stakeholders that benefit from and have responsibilities related to the CAWS, as well as regional stakeholder groups representing commercial, recreational, and environmental interests. Thank you to Mr. Ullrich for updating us on the work of The Committee, and providing this summary.
