One of the state’s most pressing issues will be discussed at eight area libraries through the month of November.

Oakland County Water Resources Commissioner Jim Nash will be kicking off National Infrastructure Week, May 15 through 21, with two informational town hall discussions beginning May 15 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Holly Public Library, 1116 N. Saginaw Street.

National Infrastructure Week promotes awareness about and sheds light on investing in water infrastructure. This year’s campaign theme is “The Future Won’t Wait. Neither Can We. It’s #TimeToBuild.”

Nash said the year-long discussions, called “Water Infrastructure 101-What You Need to Know Below and Beyond”, will be focused on aging infrastructure, water quality, stormwater and lakes among other topics. Attendees will have the opportunity to participate in a Q&A session with Nash. For more information on the town halls, visit or call (248)-858-1404.
