The Morton Arboretum is conducting a comprehensive survey of underground drainage pipes in its landscape in order to manage the flow of water to the soil of its collections and natural areas.

The DuPage River has been altered over time through dredging, and the subsequent degradation of the river has been occurring over decades, and this project aims to improve functionality and structure, restoring river health, creating new native habitats, and protecting the Arboretum’s collections.
