 At each event, residents will be able to learn about best management practices for improving stream quality and reducing flooding. “By analyzing the existing conditions and developing strategies to improve water quality and reduce flooding, the watershed plan will become a roadmap for officials, agencies and landowners to work together to make strategic improvements,” stated Madison County Chairman Alan J. Dunstan.

The Cahokia Creek Watershed Plan, which will encompass both the Canteen Creek-Cahokia Creek and Indian Creek-Cahokia Creek sub-watersheds, is one of 10 individual watershed plans that will be prepared to serve as a framework for managing stormwater and improving the overall health of watersheds in Madison County.
