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, the eight Villages in the watershed, and many others. We have held six successful stakeholder meetings.

At recent stakeholder meetings, we presented the results of our 2013 Pollutant Monitoring Program, finalized watershed goals and objectives and finalized a survey to learn about flooding issues experienced by our residents.

Our next meeting will be on Wednesday, September 3 from 7:00 PM – 9:00 PM, at the Buffalo Grove Park District offices at 150 Bernard Street in Buffalo Grove, IL. We will discuss the results of the flood survey and steps that can be taken by residents, local governments and stormwater agencies to reduce the frequency and severity of flood damage.

The first steps toward mobilizing a watershed
