New Commissioner

I want to welcome a new Commissioner to the MWRDGC Board. Last week, Gov. Pat Quinn appointed Mariyana Spyropoulos to the seat left vacant in Janury by Commissioner Patricia Young. I look forward to working with newly appointed Commissioner Spyropoulos.

New legislation to protect water quality

Gov. Pat Quinn signed legislation that asks state officials to take proactive steps toward combating the threat of trace amounts of pharmaceuticals and other hazardous chemicals detected in our waterways. The law requires the Illinois EPA to establish programs to educate the public on the proper disposal of household hazardous waste and to provide places to dispose of household hazardous waste. Read about it here.
