The Mission of the Lower DuPage River Watershed Coalition is to bring together a diverse coaltion of stakeholders to work together to preserve and enhance water quality in the Lower DuPage River and its tributaries.
The Lower DuPage River Watershed Coalition formed
to provide a local, coordinated effort to address water resource
concerns using a science based approach to identify water quality
stressors and develop ecologically and economically sound approaches to
restore stream health.
The Coalition completed a watershed based plan for
the Lower DuPage River Watershed in May of 2011 and formally adopted
bylaws and elected officers in January of 2012 to coordinate
implementation. The Coalition is supported by Agency & Associate Members based on a dues and membership fee system. Funds collected support a
Bioassessment Monitoring Program and staff to coordinate implementation,
communication and colaboration in the watershed.
The Lower DuPage River Watershed Coalition passed By-Laws to form and guide the organization in January of 2012. A copy of the By-Laws can be downloaded here.
