Jennifer Hammer

Watershed Coordinator


The Lower DuPage River Watershed Coalition formed to provide a local, coordinated effort to address water resource concerns using a science based approach to identify water quality stressors and develop ecologically and economically sound approaches to restore stream health.

The Coalition completed a watershed based plan for the Lower DuPage River Watershed in May of 2011 and formally adopted bylaws and elected officers in January of 2012 to coordinate implementation. The Coalition is supported by Agency & Associate Members based on a dues and membership fee system.  Funds collected support a Bioassessment Monitoring Program and staff to coordinate implementation, communication and colaboration in the watershed.

The Coalition is currently working towards incorporating as a non-profit organization.

Bylaws - January 2012
