Stormwater Management Update


Weekly Update: Friday, July 23, 2021

Legislator Meetings: On July 21, Village staff met with the Budget Director for House Speaker Chris Welch to describe the project scope and financing options for the Village’s Central Area Storm Sewer Project. Speaker Welch's office is exploring grant opportunities and other options to close the $4 million gap in financing for the project. A follow-up meeting between staff is scheduled for next week. Additionally, Village President Jim Discipio will be meeting with Speaker Welch to discuss the status of this important project.

Project Progress: Staff is working with the Village’s engineers to refine certain elements of the route and scope of the Central Area Storm Sewer Project. Construction of the Permeable Intersections Project is slated to begin this season. The Village is awaiting results from the core samples before the project can undergo a final review by the Metropolitan Water Reclamation District of Greater Chicago. The three "green" intersections on Monroe Avenue will be constructed to divert water that sheds off of La Grange Road.

Regional Planning: La Grange Park is participating in a transportation resilience project led by the Central Council of Mayors and the Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning to assess the transportation system's vulnerability to flooding. The assessment will culminate in a plan, which will identify flooding issues and solutions as well as pinpoint where flooding and stormwater needs coincide with planned transportation projects to help coordinate improvements. Village staff began assisting the project team this week by sharing information on the locations of flooding on streets, rail lines, bridges, and other transportation infrastructure in La Grange Park. A project kickoff meeting is scheduled for August 17.
