Glen Ellyn takes next step to address Lake Ellyn flooding
GLEN ELLYN – The Village of Glen Ellyn has taken another step to address Lake Ellyn flooding, beginning the design process for increasing the output rate of water from the lake.
The lake currently drains at 37 cubic feet per second, but based on the recommendations of a Lake Ellyn drainage study, the village is seeking to increase that amount to improve the lake's performance during a serious storm event, like the one the area saw in April.
Water drains from Lake Ellyn through an outlet structure at the north end of the lake into a storm sewer under Riford Road. The sewer brings it to a channel betwen 725 and 717 Riford Road and heads to Perry's Pond, eventually reaching the East Branch of the DuPage River.
