Downers Grove looks to improve stormwater system in 2014
DOWNERS GROVE – Downers Grove is analyzing information gathered in the wake of April's flood and plans to make improvements to the stormwater system in 2014, according to the village.
The village is reviewing input received through personal meetings, photos, emails, surveys and video, and with the help of engineers, plans to identify improvements needed 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.
