Letter to Mill Creek Watershed Stakeholders


Dear Mill Creek Watershed Stakeholders,

The Lake County Stormwater Management Commission (SMC) is developing a watershed management plan for the Mill Creek watershed. As part of the watershed planning process, SMC is trying to identify those structures in the watershed that are at risk of flooding so that the watershed plan can recommend reasonable solutions to reduce flood damage.

If you own a property in the Mill Creek watershed, we are requesting that you provide us with information regarding the flood history of your property by way of the attached questionnaire. We would appreciate it if you would complete the questionnaire by either filling out the form electronically and emailing it to acline@lakecountyil.gov, or you can choose to print and mail it to our office at 500 Winchester, Libertyville, IL 60048. If you have not experienced flooding on your property, please let us know by answering questions 1 and 7-14 of the questionnaire. The collective information received from the questionnaires will be summarized (without any address specific data) in the flood damage section of the watershed assessment and action plan.

Completing the attached questionnaire and taking flood protection steps are voluntary. You are under no obligation to participate in this program. The requested information will help us develop a useful and cost-effective watershed improvement plan that properly addresses flood damage, and will help us provide you with flood damage reduction technical assistance if you so desire such assistance.

If you have any questions about the watershed plan or this questionnaire, feel free to call Andrea Cline of the Lake County Stormwater Management Commission at 847-377-7710 or email at acline@lakecountyil.gov.
