Village Takes Action On Recent Flood Experience

The Village will be making stormwater system improvements in 2014 based on what has been experienced and learned from recent events.  Here are the next steps of the stormwater improvement action plan:

Right now, the Village is analyzing the information provided by residents about the extent of flooding. Input received through personal meetings, photos, emails, surveys and video is being reviewed with the help of engineers to identify improvements to the system.

By the end of June, a report with preliminary recommendations for future improvements and maintenance activities will be provided. In July, the Village will host public meetings to discuss the report findings and obtain additional input.

A final report and recommendation will be completed in August, in time for the 2014 budget process which begins in September.  Recommendations for improvements will be incorporated into the proposed Stormwater Fund.

There are many opportunities to provide additional information and Village staff is happy to answer questions. You may email comments regarding your flooding experience to swutilty@downers.us or call the Public Works Department at 630.434.5460.
