Elmhurst residents, builders continue to question proposed stormwater policy for new homes
ELMHURST – The Public Works and Buildings Committee received more than 40 pages of comments and concerns from local builders Tuesday before the scheduled committee meeting about the new home stormwater infiltration policy the committee is reviewing.
"During the actual meeting itself I was a little disappointed," said Chris Healy, Fifth Ward alderman and committee vice chairman, who was hoping to discuss possible solutions rather than complaints.
The proposed policy would require new construction homes to include a minimum of 750 cubic feet of on-site stormwater storage in the form of a french-drain, rain garden, underground infiltration pipe, rain harvesting system, or some combination of those options.
