DuPage River Salt Creek Workgroup
August 27, 2014 at Lombard Village Hall
Meeting Begins at 9:00AM
The East & West Branches of the DuPage River and Salt Creek are located in Northeastern Illinois, including portions of Cook, DuPage, and Will Counties and encompass an area of approximately 350 square miles of urbanized watershed.
The DRSCW (DuPage River Salt Creek Workgroup) formed in 2005 in response to concerns about TMDLs (Total Maximum Daily Loads) being set for the East & West Branches of the DuPage River and
Salt Creek. The DRSCW is made up of local communities, Publically Owned Treatment Works and private environmental organizations. The DRSCW is committed to producing comprehensive data sets for local watersheds in order to determine and resolve priority stressors to local aquatic systems. The organization seeks to implement targeted watershed activities that resolve priority water way problems efficiently and cost effectively.
