Recommdations for updating commodity flow study
Eight County Freight Plan Meeting 2 At this Steering Committee Meeting the first glimpse of freight movements in the Eight County Region in terms of tonnage, value, mode, and both domestic and international trade was presented.These commodity flows will be used in the Eight County Freight Plan in several ways, including to better understand how the freight system is used today and could be used in the future, to help articulate multimodal freight system needs, and to identify and provide justification (by key industry) for potential system improvements (including infrastructure investment and policy).This includes articulating what industries drive the Region’s economy and how those industries use transportation in their daily activities.It also includes articulating the array of infrastructure assets (including road, rail, water, and air modes) and multimodal facilities available for their use, and the unique and important roles each mode serves.Clean water is vital to life and one of our most precious resources, yet around 40% of the world’s population doesn’t have enough.At the same time, we are our own worst enemy as over 80% of wastewater generated by society flows back into the ecosystem neither treated nor reused.With urban populations worldwide swelling, there’s an urgent need to calculate the sustainable performance of the buildings that we live and work in.

The core team then takes actions that are necessary to imple- ment the information.
