DuPage County Stormwater Management Encouraging Residents to Complete Water Quality Survey

DuPage County Stormwater Management is encouraging residents and business owners to complete a brief survey regarding water quality in the County’s waterways.

Stormwater Management is conducting the survey to measure public awareness of stormwater runoff and its effect on local streams and rivers. In an effort to attain healthier waterways nationwide, public education about water quality is among activities mandated by the Clean Water Act.

Responses will be used to create and modify water quality outreach materials, which are aimed at educating residents on ways to reduce pollution in the County’s waterways. The end goal is to make local rivers and streams supportive of both aquatic life and recreational uses.

The survey is available through the end of November at www.surveymonkey.com/s/dpcwaterquality.
