Pershing Avenue West of Chase Street

The Pershing Avenue / Elm Street flow path west of Chase Street is a flow path with approximately 47 acres directly tributary. The tributary area is generally bounded by Roosevelt Road to the north, Dawes Avenue to the south, Grant Street to the east, and Naperville Road to the west.

This tributary contains an undesigned flow path through multiple private properties with four distinct upland depressional areas as well. Although some of the depressional areas are served by a small storm sewer when intense rainfalls occur, the depressional areas flood creating significant ponding near or surrounding nearby structures.
