Water Supply &


A safe and sustainable water supply cannot be taken for granted. We work with our clients to deliver long-term planning and public strategy for water projects. We know from experience the importance of coalition building and working across borders to preserve natural resources.

Alternate Water Source and Conservation
CLIENT: City of Joliet

The City of Joliet was in need of an alternate water source, which currently draws water from the Ironton-Galesville aquifer. The Illinois State Water Survey data indicates that at its current usage rate, the existing water source will no longer be viable by 2030. As the third most populous city in northeast Illinois, Joliet had the ability to lead the way in sustainable water sourcing throughout the region. The Rethink Water Joliet initiative started with a study that identified Lake Michigan for Joliet’s water supply. Through this effort the communities of Channahon, Crest Hill, Minooka, Romeoville, and Shorewood decided to join Joliet and formed the Grand Prairie Water Commission. The project is moving forward with the design and construction of the infrastructure needed to bring Lake Michigan water to the region. The City of Joliet hired a team of consultants to guide the Rethink Water Joliet initiative. We lead the communications on this project. 

We have put water conservation on everyone’s radar. We’ve taken the lead on public involvement initiatives including strategic communications; stakeholder identification and coordination; event planning; graphic design and content writing; website content and design; social media; newsletters; presentations; press releases and media coordination and more.
