What can I do to prevent flooding in my home?

Residents who have issues with flooding in their home can schedule a free drainage review with the City's stormwater engineer by calling 630-260-2870. This comprehensive evaluation examines everything having to do with drainage and your property. The stormwater engineer will discuss where the water comes from, how it gets there and, most importantly, what can be done to alleviate your property’s problems. In addition, see the City's flooding prevention tips.
