Terri Michaelis, right, guides a can filled with water Friday at One Summit Square Plaza during a Project WET, Water Education for Teachers, train-the-trainer workshop on water resources. In this simulation on water use, Michaelis represented business, industry and energy. Working with her are Matt Jones, left, Martha Shoff and Melinda Sweeten, each representing a sector – such as agriculture, recreation, fish and wildlife – and its water demands. The exercise illustrated some of the challenges in managing water resources. The workshop was put on by the Allen County Partnership for Water Quality.
