Spring into Overflow Action Month

MWRD President Mariyana Spyropoulos with Friends' executive director, Margaret Frisbie

April is Overflow Action Month, and Friends encourages everyone to take small steps at work and at home to conserve water, protecting our river and wildlife from combined sewer overflows (CSOs).

On World Water Day (March 22, 2017), CBS2 News interviewed Friends' executive director, Margaret Frisbie, and Metropolitan Water Reclamation District of Greater Chicago (MWRD) President Mariyana Spyropoulos at McCook Reservoir to discuss stormwater and sewage management and our #OverflowAction Days campaign. 

Learn all about Overflow Action Days and take our pledge today to save water and keep our river safe, clean, and healthy.
