Training Events
Frac Workshop- trying to track down someone from the industry side. Will try and get someone wrapped up in next couple of weeks to complete the speaker alignment. Robyn will contact the national committee working on fracking.  We have - ISGS-
Don Keifer,Hydro-geologists, Cindy Skukrud - Sierra Club. Need to get someone from IDNR enforcement side and still tracking down who that might be. IDNR has said they will make someone available.

A person in the Champagne area owns some prime land in Illinois that they are being targeted for fracking in the near future. Greg Swanson knows this person. It used to be 5-8 million gallons per frac event, we are unsure if that is still the case.

The future of water is a great book. Great read.

WATERCON 2014
We need to put together a track. We need to reserve a track even if we don't have specifics for it. Yes, we will commit to filling an afternoon half day. There may be papers that come in that we can slot but we may also need to fill the gaps.

America's Water Shed
Greg reported on the report from this group. They are doing American's Annual Watershed in September. Date is not yet set.
Lyndsie Olsen the artist from WATERCON is working with Augustana College on the upper Mississippi study center and looking at it in a holistic way and use her artwork as a focal point and doing a total water event in the future. There would be an opening and some educational sessions and tie the art to the sessions. Involve the student artists and invite local politicians and local water management to attend. We need to start thinking of water as a total water cycle and not thinking of it as just source water. This is like the water festival in Denver. NGRREC in the Alton area is a great resource and may help in Greg's effort.

Source Water Protection Award
Robyn distributed the national award data so that we can decide if we want to create a new one in Illinois or promote the national award by awarding an Illinois one. We can award one and national accepts as many as they can get. This is based on people using the AWWA source water standard. If we recognize them on a state level and they are recognized on national level, it would be great. We can also put in a splash article. There are a lot of potential people out there that should qualify for a source water award.

Agreed to follow the national guidelines and award the state award also. They would like to award in the afternoon on Monday.

SPLASH article-
Develop a SPLASH article to promote the state award as well as the national AWWA.

Links on website
Lydia has offered to research some links on fracing from the internet.
