Indiana Water Summit
Managing regional and local water supplies and insuring a sustainable and resilient future for Indiana depend upon the cooperation of dozens of stakeholder organizations, public officials and state policy makers, as well as individual citizens.
About the Summit
The Indiana Water Summit is an apolitical and inclusive annual forum developed to examine the complex interests and issues that face our water supply. The Summit’s subject matter seeks to remain consistent with and build upon current legislative actions in order to provide a broad planning perspective, weaving together diverse topics that together demonstrate the interdependency of water issues and the science behind the state of the waters.
The overarching goal of the Summit is to lay the framework for state- and regional-level water planning. Topics are selected to align with relevant university research, as well as the current water needs and challenges facing all sectors of water users (agriculture, industry, utility, community quality of life, etc.) and the set of strategies outlined in the Indiana Water Roadmap. The format of the Summit includes a combination of national and local speakers; a review of best practices, case studies, and lessons learned; interactive elements; and an influential keynote address. The Summit is supported by many partners and individuals – learn more about supporting the Summit here.
We’re already planning for the 6th Annual Indiana Water Summit which will take place in 2023!

Summit Leadership & Working Group
The Water Summit Working Group takes Summit and Forum content and discussions and turns it into follow-up actions. This may include collaborative projects across water sectors, cooperative funding, policy recommendations, program and SOP alignment, cross-marketing events, and unified educational initiatives. This work, like the Summit agenda, will revolve around the Indiana Water Roadmap strategies. The Working Group meets four to six times a year for half-day workshop sessions. If you’re interested in participating in the Group, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
