DuPage County Stormwater Management Opens Public Comment Period for Water Quality Watershed Plan
The DuPage County Stormwater Management Planning Committee voted Tuesday to
open the public comment period for the draft Sawmill Creek Water Quality
Watershed-Based Plans. The public comment period will be open through November
The plans outline projects and programs that may improve water quality throughout
the Sawmill Creek Watershed, which encompasses portions of Burr Ridge, Darien, Downers
Grove, Lemont, Willowbrook, Woodridge and Unincorporated DuPage County. Once
both DuPage County and the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency (IEPA)
approve the draft plan, 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 plan on Thursday, October 26, 2017 from noon to
1:00 p.m. in the Council Chamber at Darien City Hall (1702 Plainfield Road).
The draft watershed plan is 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 plan must be submitted in writing by the
close of business on November 6, 2017. Comments may be submitted via email to Water.Quality@dupageco.org or by
