Providence Village Drainage Inspections

Over the last several years, the Village of Gurnee has received a number of complaints regarding erosion and drainage concerns within Providence Village. To further study these concerns, Village Engineering staff began inspecting the large backyard and side yard drainage swales in January 2018 for properties south of Middle Road, and then continued the inspections to properties north of Middle Road in September 2018.

As potential drainage issues are discovered, Village Staff Engineers and engineering consultants are putting together recommendations on how to improve drainage in these areas. To help visualize the recommendations, the following map is available:

Recommendations for properties south of Middle Road can be found at the link below. Recommendations for properties north of Middle Road will be published once the findings are determined.
