A report offering recommendations for flood prevention at Lake Ellyn will be presented to Glen Ellyn Park District officials next week.
Last week, the report was presented to the Village of Glen Ellyn’s Board of Trustees and it highlights proposed recommendations, which could cost up to $300,000, according to a story in the Chicago Tribune.
The recommendations include increasing the lake’s discharge up to its maximum along with adding a culvert connection along Riford Road, according to the story.
The village purchased some properties in an effort to rehabilitate areas that were eroding while funneling water away from Glen Ellyn.
Some fixes have already been made and the village has taken the lead on the work and will continue to do so, the Tribune story said. It’s unclear whether the park district will contribute toward any future projects.
