DuPage County Stormwater Management Congratulates Water Quality Improvement Grant Recipient

DuPage County Stormwater Management would like to congratulate Water Quality Improvement Grant recipient North Central College (Naperville) on the completion of their Sesquicentennial Walkway for foot traffic through the heart of the campus.

Stormwater Management provided an $118,800 grant to construct green infrastructure implementations into the project. The Walkway features permeable brick pavers to reduce and slow stormwater runoff. Additionally, rain gardens were constructed alongside the Walkway to collect stormwater runoff and filter pollutants carried with it.

Applications for the 2013 Water Quality Improvement Grant can be found here. For more information on the project, visit North Central College's website
