MWRD Initiates Online Incident Reporting Tool

July 31st, 2014

MWRD colorMetropolitan Water Reclamation District of Greater Chicago (MWRD) has launched a new incident reporting tool on their website. This portal will collect reports of odors, stream blockages and other environmental-related issues.

“This new tool will allow residents to notify us of environmental issues countywide,” said Commissioner Kari Steele, chairman of the Committee on Information Technology. “We understand unpleasant environmental occurrences are inconvenient and disruptive, but by completing the new online report, our staff will be able to work to address them.

MWRD is also in the process of creating a incident report application for smartphones. A pollution control officer attempts to investigate each report within five business days, though some cases may be open longer due to the nature of the event and/or involvement of other agencies.
