Overflow Action Day #1: Sign Up

Tags: River Education

Sign up for Overflow Action Days e-alerts for reminders to reduce your water use before, during, and right after rain storms. Conserving water during heavy rains reduces the chance that sewage and stormwater runoff pollution will end up in the river.

Fun fact: The Chicago River system is alive with wildlife in, on, and along the river--including over 70 species of fish, hundreds of species of birds, beavers, muskrats, turtles, snakes, toads and otters.
