This past year, Gurnee Engineering began inspecting drainage concerns south of Middle Road to provide recommendations for improving drainage. To further study these concerns, Village Engineering staff and Village consultants will be inspecting the large backyard and side yard drainage swales in Providence Village, north of Middle Road, in the coming weeks. To accomplish this inspection, Village staff and consulting engineers will be accessing yards through drainage easements. The individuals performing the drainage inspections will be marked with a "Gurnee Engineering" safety vest and will have a photo ID card available upon request. Upon completion of this inspection, a list of recommendations will be prepared and presented to the subdivision at a later public meeting. Information regarding this meeting will be forthcoming. Please forward any questions or concerns to the Engineering Division at 847-599-7550.
