DuPage County will hold a public information meeting regarding the draft East Branch DuPage River Watershed Resiliency Plan on Monday, February 23, 2015, 7-8 p.m. at the Lombard Village Hall, 255 E. Wilson Ave.
DuPage County began studying the East Branch Watershed, which encompasses the central portion of DuPage County extending from Addison into Will County, to assess how communities could become more resilient for extreme weather events. In order to accomplish this, DuPage County enlisted the support of local communities to provide information on flooding and quality of life in the area. The resulting draft Plan provides a comprehensive overview of the watershed, including where vulnerabilities lie and how to protect the area better against future weather extremes.
During the public meeting, constituents will have the opportunity to learn more about the data and information that helped form the draft document, as well the proposed recommendations moving forward. In addition, they may provide feedback and input on the draft Plan.
The draft East Branch DuPage River Watershed Resiliency Plan is currently open for public comment through Tuesday, February 24, 2015. A link to the draft document is listed below. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 630-407-6706 to request paper copies.
