Basement Flooding

8eaf-KeepFloodFree

Basement flooding in common in older urban areas, especially when the majority of the community is served by a combined storm water and sanitary sewer system, such as in La Grange Park. When a large amount of rain falls in a relatively short period of time, the system can become overwhelmed, resulting in temporary overland flooding until the water has time to make its way into the sewer system.

To mitigate the potentially for basement flooding, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has developed a guide which outlines several preventative measure residents can take to protect their homes. Please note that most of these measures required a building permit, so contact the Village’s Building Department at (708) 354-0225 or building@lagrangepark.org before beginning work.
