Buffalo Creek Clean Water Partnership

Line Solid

You are invited to participate in the Buffalo Creek Clean Water Partnership!

Our Vision is that Buffalo Creek will be a sustainable watershed success story with reduced erosion, improved water quality, thriving wildlife, decreased flooding and the beauty of native vegetation. This will be accomplished through collaborative and inclusive community and agency partnerships.

Our partners include the Lake County Stormwater Management Commission, Lake County Department of Health, Metropolitan Water Reclamation District of Greater Chicago, all of the municipalities in the watershed, residents and other interested parties.

At our most recent stakeholder meeting, we saw maps with 552 proposed project sites, broken down by type for each Village, and discussed our Education and Outreach plan. Presentations and meeting minutes can be accessed in the "meetings" tab. Also, click on the red labels in the Virtual Buffalo Creek tab to see videos about the issues that affect Buffalo Creek.

Our next meeting will be on April 29, 2015, at 7 pm at the Kildeer Village Hall, 21911 Quentin Road in Kildeer. We will discuss the Watershed Action Plan implementation including Measurable Milestones and Watershed Plan Evaluation.
