Glen Ellyn seeks to maximize Lake Ellyn's water output to reduce flooding
GLEN ELLYN – As part of efforts to curb Lake Ellyn flooding, Glen Ellyn officials will work with engineers to determine the maximim output rate possible for water that leaves the lake and enters surrounding bodies of water.
At the Glen Ellyn Village Board meeting Aug. 12, trustees approved a $38,000 agreement with Engineering Resource Associates to perform the necessary computer modeling services to determine the maximum discharge rate possible for Lake Ellyn.
The lake currently drains at 37 cubic feet per second, according to village documents, 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, such as the one the area saw in April.
