Climate is an average of weather over a period of time. Climate change can result when greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide and methane increase in our atmosphere and trap infrared radiation. As greenhouse gases continue to increase, scientists are predicting that climatic changes will increase as well. Climate change is among the top environmental challenges facing today’s society, impacting aquatic and land ecosystems. It poses threats to human lives, environments, and economies too. IISG will help communities and individuals as they seek to mitigate and adapt for climate change.
Because conservation pricing is among the most effective best management practices, the Northeast Illinois Regional Water Supply Planning Group recommends that communities and utilities review water rate schedules and potential modifications of rate structures to encourage water conservation.
