the past two years, our community has suffered through several intense
rain storms. These storms bring record setting volumes of rain in a
short period of time creating severe flooding problems for thousands of
residents. Over the past several weeks the Department of Water
Management and National Power Rodding have been working throughout the
Beverly, Morgan Park, and Mount Greenwood communities cleaning, rodding,
and inspecting several miles of sewer lines.
The Chicago Department
of Water Management, Metropolitan Water Reclamation District, and
Alderman Matt O'Shea will co-host two community meetings on storm water
management. These meetings will give homeowners the opportunity to
discuss their specific issues with the engineers and learn what steps
can be taken to reduce the risk of flooding.
As flooding conditions vary throughout the ward, residents are asked to attend the meeting specifically for their area.
