Road Construction Update: All roads within the 2014 Road Improvement Program area have been surfaced as of 10:00 this morning. Over the remaining two weeks of the project, the contractor will be removing and replacing asphalt drive approaches, replacing culverts, re-grading ditches and performing parkway restoration. We are asking residents to continue to respect the temporary “No Parking” signs. Without cars parked on the pavement, the contractor will be able to work more quickly and safely. We do realize that there will be a period of a few hours, when asphalt drives are removed and replaced, where on-street parking may be necessary and our field representative, Bill Sprague, will coordinate with those residents as the work approaches them. The project completion date remains November 19th.

Stormwater Survey: DuPage County Stormwater Management is encouraging residents and business owners to complete a brief survey regarding water quality in the County’s waterways. Stormwater Management is conducting the survey to measure public awareness of stormwater runoff and its effect on local streams and rivers. In an effort to attain healthier waterways nationwide, public education about water quality is among activities mandated by the Clean Water Act. Responses will be used to create and modify water quality outreach materials, which are aimed at educating residents on ways to reduce pollution in the County’s waterways. The end goal is to make local rivers and streams supportive of both aquatic life and recreational uses. The survey is available through the end of November at www.surveymonkey.com/s/dpcwaterquality.
