Vote for a Greener Water Reclamation Board!

Cook County’s Metropolitan Water Reclamation District is one of the largest waste treatment and flood prevention agencies in the world. Overseen by an elected Board of Commissioners, this taxpayer-funded agency is also one of Cook County’s largest governmental bodies, with over 2,000 employees and an annual operating budget of well over a billion dollars.

The Metropolitan Water Reclamation District, or MWRD, is responsible for:

  • Flood prevention and abatement in Cook County
  • Wastewater and sewage treatment for most of Cook County (a handful of suburban municipalities have their own sewer authority)
  • Water quality testing in the Chicago Area Waterway System, which covers 76 miles of navigable waterways all across Cook County

For more than 20 years, all Commissioners elected to the Board have been Democrats. The Green Party is running a slate of three candidates in 2020 on a unified platform that prioritizes flood-preventing infrastructure and governmental reforms to end the entrenched culture of pay-to-play, cronyism, and nepotism.

Vote Green Party candidates for clean water, clean soil, and clean government!
