Flood Control Study
To create a plan that will reduce the amount of flooding in the Village.
The Village has hired three engineering consultant companies, V3 Companies of Illinois, Christopher Burke, and RJN, to compile data and provide a plan that will drive future flood related construction projects.
This study will give the Village direction on which projects should take priority and how each project will relieve the amount of flooding for residents and businesses.
