Help Minimize Localized Flooding - Clear Nearby Storm Sewer Inlets!

With temperatures beginning to exceed the freezing level over the next few weeks, the Village is requesting that residents search for and clear ice and snow from any storm sewer inlets near their home.  These inlets allow snow melt-off and rain water to be safely carried away from homes, businesses and other structures and keep streets clear of localized flooding. However, when blocked, their ability to collect and transport water is dramatically reduced. Residents with any questions or who see pooling water over 6 inches deep should contact the Public Works Department at (847) 599-6800. Residents needing assistance finding their inlet can refer to the Village's interactive Storm Sewer Map for guidance (inlets are indicated by solid green squares).
