Stormwater Management

A Message from the Chairman

Jim ZayWelcome to Stormwater Management's webpage. Since the inception of DuPage County Stormwater Management 26 years ago, the County has been at the forefront of regional stormwater planning. As Chairman of the Stormwater Management Planning Committee, I work with the County Board, municipalities and staff to ensure DuPage County is providing its residents with the highest quality stormwater management. Each of Stormwater Management’s five program areas—Watershed Management, Floodplain Mapping, Water Quality, Regulatory Services, and Operations and Maintenance—strives to reach our goal of mitigating the effects of urbanization on stormwater drainage to reduce the instances of damaging floods and improve the quality of our waterways.

I encourage you to explore Stormwater Management’s ongoing regional projects and initiatives, including information on how you can become involved in preserving and enhancing our waterways. Together, we can ensure DuPage County remains a top-tier community to live, work and raise a family. Thank you for taking the time to visit Stormwater Management’s webpage, and I encourage you to stop by often for the latest news and updates on current projects.

Chairman, Stormwater Management Planning Committee
