Water Is Necessary for Life, Health, and Economic Opportunity

McHenry County residents are fortunate to have ample water resources including groundwater aquifers and aquatic habitats.  However, these water resources are vulnerable and need to be protected or restored so they may continue providing the benefits that we depend on.

You can be part of the solution by joining the Water Resources Action Plan (WRAP) Task Force that will be updating the county’s existing plan with the most current data and management strategies.  The Task Force meetings are open to anyone with an interest in protecting water resources.  Municipalities can also get credit for their NPDES MS4 Permits through participation in the Task Force.

The updated WRAP will be a comprehensive guide designed to educate decision-makers from the county, municipalities, businesses and individuals about water resources, the potential threats to those resources, and Best Management Practices that can help protect or restore them.

This is an exciting opportunity to learn from leading experts in the field and to help shape the future of water resource planning and protection in McHenry County. 

Join us for the Kick-Off Meeting on Wednesday, March 13, 2019 to learn more about water in McHenry County and how your participation in the WRAP Task Force can make a difference. 

If you can’t attend the kick-off meeting, you are still invited to attend any of the other Task Force meetings.  Check below for meeting dates, topics and speakers.

We look forward to seeing you there!!!
