In-Construction Stormwater Projects

S.W. Elmhurst Stormwater Mitigation Project - Phase I


In an effort to further reduce overland flooding in southwest Elmhurst the City purchased land south of Messiah Lutheran Church along Butterfield Road and plans to construct a new detention basin at this location.  With the size of the property the City is able to create a new 17 ac-ft detention basin to reduce overland flooding along the Jackson Street and Spring Road areas.  This new detention, when combined with Phase II project, will provide significant flood reductions benefits for 121 residential properties along Spring Road (between Butterfield and Jackson) and Jackson Street (between Spring and Bryan). Work is scheduled to begin in early July of 2018 and be completed by spring 2019.  Click on link below to view the 100-Year Inundation Area Map.
