The Metropolitan Water Reclamation District of Greater Chicago (MWRD), in cooperation with the Lake County Forest Preserves, is developing engineering design plans to expand MWRD's existing Buffalo Creek Reservoir and improve public access at the preserve.

The joint project involves expanding floodwater storage at the reservoir, and conducting habitat restoration work and improving public access throughout the preserve. Public access improvements include adding and relocating trails and bridges to expand recreational opportunities at the preserve.

The entrance to Buffalo Creek Forest Preserve is located at Checker Road just west of Arlington Heights Road in Vernon. 

Public Open House

The public is invited to attend an informational open house to learn more about the project, meet with MWRD project planners and view concept plans. 

The public open house will be held Wednesday, Jan. 22, at the Buffalo Grove Village Hall from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.
