Stormwater Management Opens Public Comment Period for Water Quality Watershed Plans
The DuPage County Stormwater Management Planning Committee voted Tuesday to
open the public comment period for the draft Kress Creek and Klein Creek Water
Quality Watershed-Based Plans. The public comment period will be open from September
5 through October 5.
The plans outline projects and programs that may improve water quality throughout
both the Kress Creek and Klein Creek watersheds in the western portion of
DuPage County. Once both DuPage County and the Illinois Environmental
Protection Agency (IEPA) approve the draft plans, the County, municipalities
and other private and public stakeholders may apply for IEPA grant funding to
carry out initiatives identified in the plan.
DuPage County Stormwater Management will also hold a public meeting to
discuss the draft watershed plans on Thursday, September 21, 2017 from noon to
1:00 p.m. in room 3-500B of the County’s Administration Building (421 N. County
Farm Rd., Wheaton).
The draft watershed plans are available online at http://www.dupageco.org/EDP/Stormwater_Management/6597/.
In addition, hard copies are available for review at DuPage County’s
Administration Building during normal business hours from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Comments on the draft watershed plans must be submitted in writing by the
close of business on October 5, 2017. Comments may be submitted via email to Water.Quality@dupageco.org or by
mail to Mary Beth Falsey, c/o Department of Stormwater Management, 421 North
County Farm Rd., Wheaton, IL 60187.
