DuPage County Stormwater Management Hosting Wetland Map Information Meetings
DuPage County Stormwater Management will host two public information meetings regarding the County's recently updated draft wetland map. Both meetings will take place at the County's JTK Administration Building, 421 N. County Farm Rd., Wheaton, on Tuesday, June 23, at 2:30 p.m. in room 3-500B and Thursday, June 25, at 6 p.m. in the cafeteria.
In 2012, DuPage County received an $118,369 grant from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to update the existing wetland map. Although the map is not regulatory, it is a valuable planning tool for local governments, developers, property owners and residents.
During the public meeting, attendees will have the opportunity to learn more about the data and information used in the update. In addition, attendees are invited to provide information to improve the accuracy of draft map.
The draft wetland map is currently open for comment through Thursday, July 2, 2015. To view the draft maps and submit comments electronically, visit /EDP/Stormwater_Management/Natural_Areas/39739/. Maps may also be viewed in person at the County's JTK Administration Building between normal business hours of 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
