Winfield Creek Watershed Plan


The DuPage County Board approved the original Winfield Creek Watershed Plan in 1994.  Due to significant rainfall events that occurred in 2008 and 2010, the communities of Winfield, Wheaton and Carol Stream asked that DuPage County reevaluate the Winfield Creek Watershed Plan. The County has divided the watershed planning efforts into three phases within the Watershed. The first phase involves flood control improvements within the Village of Winfield. The second and third phases will investigate flood control improvements through the remainder of the watershed and water quality projects throughout the watershed.
