May 8th Flood Meeting Information
During the May 8 meeting, staff and engineers presented information related to the overall operation of the Village's stormwater management system, specifically the events of April 18 that resulted in significant flooding in Clarendon Hills and the entire Chicago region. The Village also distributed a questionnaire that will help to better assess the operation of the Village's Stormwater system and identify areas for improvement. The PowerPoint Presentation and questionnaire are found in the following links:
The May 8 meeting is the first step the Village is taking in gathering information in order to consider improvements to the stormwater system. A report will be presented to the Village Board in October, which will then consider the costs and benefits of additional stormwater management investments.
The Village is currently working with DuPage County to apply for federal assistance from the April 18 floods. When the Village receives information on whether assistance will be made available, it will pass it on to residents.
