About the Bull Creek-Bull's Brook Watershed Council

The BCBB Council is ready to move forward with the mission of improving water quality, protecting and restoring natural resources, reducing flood damage, enhance education and stewardship and guiding new development to benefit the watershed goals.  Application to become an official member of the council requires adoption of a community/organizational resolution, or a letter of commitment to use the plan as a guidance document within the context of community or organizational decision-making as it affects the greater watershed goals. Please contact Kathleen O'Connor, or call 847.816.6800 if you have questions about council membership.
