Elmhurst flood-control improvement project begins next week
The City of Elmhurst said late last week that it will implement the community’s largest stormwater improvement project in over 20 years.
The Walnut/Myrtle/Evergreen Stormwater Improvement Project, which begins Feb. 8, will include the installation of storm and sewer pipes throughout the infrastructure of several Elmhurst streets, as well as a drainage outfall to the Elmhurst Quarry Flood Control Facility to provide better flood control in the Walnut/Myrtle/Evergreen area in the western corner of the city, where flooding has been a problem for several years
The entire project, expected to be completed by November, has an estimated price tag of $4.5 million and will provide 20 acre-feet of flood relief to 76 homes in this part of the city. Bolder Contractors of Cary, Illinois, has been hired to build and install a relief sewer for this project.
