Awards & News

IECA - Environmental Achievement Award

International Erosion Control Association - Converting a Degraded Quarry Into a Restored Community Asset. According to the IECA Awards Committe Chair, "Jelke Creek is a wonderful example of a restoration project that provided not only erosion control but multiple benefits to the community."

IAFSM - Stormwater Management Award

Illinois Association for Floodplain and Stormwater Management - Stormwater Management Award for Converting a Degraded Quarry Into a Restored Community Asset (LWC Provided Engineering Design, Permitting, Construction Observation, Monitoring and Maintenance Observations).

The Illinois DNR states, "The Project restored 150 acres of eroded quarry with chronic flooding and 20-foot tall degraded slopes into a recreational park amenity. Over 86 acres of the Project Site now retain and infiltrate runoff from the sub-watershed through the 100-year, 24-hour rainfall recurrence interval.  The stormwater management and biodiversity project both encourages natural landscapes and helps greatly reduce the deposition of sediment into Jelkes Creek.  The Project should become a model project for future quarry restoration efforts."


Governor's Hometown Award
