T. Cullerton First BillWith more and more of the suburbs being paved and developed, a growing concern is what to do with the seemingly countless gallons of storm runoff pouring through suburban streets and flooding properties every year.

State Sen. Tom Cullerton, the former mayor of Villa Park, is attempting to make it easier for suburban communities to utilize environmental solutions that reduce and ideally use the problematic runoff.

Legislation sponsored by Cullerton was approved Thursday by the Illinois Senate on a vote of 55 to 0.

Cullerton’s legislation spells out that suburban communities have the ability to maintain so-called “green infrastructure” such as green roofs, rain gardens and other environmental alternatives to the traditional storm sewer network.
