Small Stream Maintenance Program

To reduce flooding in urbanized areas through immediate and relatively simple remedies is the mission statement of the Small Streams Maintenance Program (SSMP) of the Metropolitan Water Reclamation District of Greater Chicago (MWRD).  Since it began in 2006, dedicated crews have provided a valuable service by removing debris from creeks, streams and waterways.  The success of the SSMP depends on cooperation and coordination among all communities to efficiently & respectfully manage the waterways.
