Danada Wetland Mitigation Project

The DuPage County Countywide Stormwater Flood Plain Ordinance (DCSFPO) allows for wetland mitigation to be provided for through an in lieu fee program when traditional wetland mitigation options are not feasible or are unavailable.  These funds are used to create large scale wetland creation projects. The Danada wetland mitigation project is located southwest of the corner of Naperville Rd. and Butterfield Rd. within the DuPage County Forest Preserve.  The project will include an ecologically viable wetland creation and habitat enhancement project. The goal is to restore wetland hydrology, native wetland vegetation, and provide a native upland buffer component.
