WELCOME TO THE FRIENDS OF MADIGAN CREEK WEBSITE

A small group of property owners asked for help to understand changes in storm water run off near their homes due to new building and development. They are now working with the Kishwaukee River Ecosystem Partnership to collect and organize information about the Madigan Creek watershed for the purpose of identifying degraded areas, loose sediment, and points of obstructed water flow.

“Water is the most critical resource issue of our lifetime and our children’s lifetime. The health of our waters is the principal measure of how we live on the land.”
-Luna Leopold, Hydrologist
