Long Run Creek
Long Run Creek meanders through the backyards of many residents in southwestern Cook County and northern Will County.

Because of concerns about flooding and the area's natural resources, citizens and government officials began meeting in December 1998 to develop a plan for the Long Run Creek Watershed.

Over the past few years the group has been actively addressing many of the concerns listed in the plan as well as educating property owners, townships, and municipalities about these concerns. For example, the Long Run Creek Watershed Committee has held workshops to teach property owners about the best management practices for creek maintenance. It has also partnered with the Village of Homer Glen to enhance and restore a wetland on the Creek, and to incoporate watershed resource concerns in the village's comprehensive plan.
