Gov. Pat Quinn on Sunday signed into law three pieces of legislation aimed at improving safety of the state’s water supply.
The Urban Flooding Awareness Act creates a working group of representatives from local, state and federal agencies to recommend ways to control urban flooding. Another bill requires community water supply systems to designate an operator who will be directly responsible for each system’s supply and distribution.
And the third bill allows law enforcement agencies to collect pharmaceuticals and other controlled substances from residents for safe disposal.
