MWRD Community Outreach Program

Cook County residents, business owners, municipalities, non-profit organizations, schools, colleges and universities located within the MWRD service area may request a speaker for their classroom, meeting, or special event to learn how and why the MWRD protects and manages the waterways while recovering valuable resources.  We also staff educational booths and have drawings for free rain barrels and oak saplings. In addition, we can provide valuable educational materials at community events.  Free tours are also available at our facilities.
