In-Construction Stormwater Projects

Jackson School


Status: In Construction

Creating flood storage in the open space area adjacent to Jackson Elementary School would significantly reduce the risk of flooding the Saylor Avenue/Jackson Street flood-prone area in Southwest Elmhurst. The provided flood storage volume can be increased even further if the proposed flood storage area is expanded onto the open space area of the Christ United Methodist Church property, which is adjacent to Jackson Elementary School. The goal of this project is to provide a location to safely hold stormwater while maintaining the existing recreational uses of the school site.
