Members of the China Environment Forum will be in northwest Indiana tomorrow (17 August), reports Inside INdiana Business. They will discuss initiatives to highlight environmental improvements in the region. The information gathered is expected to help the delegation deal with severe water pollution in China's Lake Tai.
