Addison Adds 62 Medallions
Michael Capizzano, Commissioner for the Addison Park District, helped organize the addition of 62 stormwater medallions to the city's storm-drains, protecting both fish and water throughout the county.
Eco-Extraordinaires Lorraine & Mylo show off a medallion in Lisle! Lorraine coordinated installation of medallions throughout Lisle to protect water and educate the community. Ecolab provided funding for the new medallions. Thank you!
