Terrace View Pond improvements proposed in Lombard
LOMBARD – An improvement project is planned for Terrace View Pond in the hopes that flood relief can be brought to the surrounding neighborhoods.
Although village engineers expect these improvements to reduce the frequency of flooding in the area of Crystal Avenue, the pond's watershed, they will offer little relief in the event of a storm similar to the one that hit the village on April 18.
Crystal Avenue, which borders the pond to the north, is one of the most flood-prone areas near the pond, and during a storm the water flows to this three-block stretch of land. Currently, there is a storm sewer on the street that carries rain water to the village's pumping station at Route 53, and a second storm sewer that brings water directly into the pond when the first backs up.
