Churchill Woods Dam Removal

The DuPage River Salt Creek Work Group (DRSCWG) has studied the Churchill Woods Dam and the negative environmental effects the Dam to the upstream impoundment and the water quality on the East Branch DuPage River as well as limit fish passage and recreational opportunities. As a result of this study the DRSCWG has obtained a cost share grant from IEPA to remove this dam and improve the area upstream of the Dam. DuPage County Stormwater Management has budgeted to contribute to the cost share portion of the Grant for this project.
