Jennifer Bertino-Tarrant  Will County Executive

I am honored to serve as your Will County Executive. As a lifelong resident of this great county, I have witnessed many changes as we have evolved from an ag-community to a major hub in the global distribution market.  I am dedicated to building upon this status but I am equally dedicated to maintaining the quality of life for the nearly 700,000 residents and thousands of businesses and organizations that call Will County home. 

Please explore our website which is filled with important information about services and departments within the County Executive office as well as connections to other county officials’ websites.

Will County is diverse, vibrant, and filled with hard-working people. We have room to grow and we look forward to a great future.

Comments accepted until Dec. 4 for DuPage River Watershed Study

     The U.S. Army Corps of Enginners (USACE), Chicago District is accepting written comments from residents until Dec. 4. Anyone wishing to submit information, can email: chicagodistrict.pao@usace.army.mil.  More information about the study can be found at the website: www.lrc.usace.army.mil

     The USACE hosted two public meetings in Will County to inform residents about the study of the potential effects associated with flooding within the DuPage River watershed. During these meetings, residents were encouraged to share their personal experiences with flooding in this region. 

     The DuPage River and tributaries drain approximately 353 square miles in suburban Cook, DuPage and Will Counties in Illinois. The study area has experienced rapid development over the past several decades, and currently includes 40 communities and approximately 900,000 residents. Major storm events occurred in the basin in 1996, 2008, 2009, and most recently in April 2013 resulting in overbank flooding in at least 20 communities and causing significant damage to residential and non-residential structures, critical infrastructure and the closure of two major interstate highways (I-80 and I-55) for several days.
