Welsh named Stormwater Manager of the Year
Lindenhurst Public Works Director Wes Welsh has been named "Stormwater Manager of the Year" for 2012 by the Lake County Stormwater Management Commission.
For more than 22 years, Welsh has served as the village's public works director and engineer, overseeing stormwater infrastructure and land development projects. His efficient operation of the wastewater facility has contributed to improving water quality in Hastings Creek, a tributary to North Mill Creek and the Des Plaines River.
Recently he assisted the commission in a grant application for the buyout of repetitively flood damaged homes in the village, and participated in the development and update of the Lake County All Natural Hazards Mitigation Plan. Since 2006, the commission has recognized the efforts of individuals, local governments, groups, and projects reflecting its mission of flood damage reduction, protection and restoration of Lake County's natural resources, and water quality improvements.
Other 2012 recipients included the village of North Barrington; Township High School District 113; Barbara Waller, director, Cool Learning Experience, First Baptist Church, Waukegan; and the Center for Watershed Protection, Ellicott City, Md.
