Best Management Practice Information
City staff will periodically post documents and links in this section with tips for residents to help improve the water quality in the runoff from their properties.
Please be mindful of how your lawn is treated for weeds and fertilizers, as chemical treatments contribute pollutants into the runoff which in many cases ends up in local ponds, creeks and rivers.
- Visit the DuPage County website for information on Water Quality.
- To report any issues on streams or rivers, see the Citizen Reporter Web app. If you need assistance using the app, review the Water Quality Collector App (PDF) instructions.
