To alleviate drainage issues and increase the quality of stormwater runoff throughout the Village.


This project consists of ditching and construction of stormwater best management practices (BMPs) on South Monterey Avenue between Madison Street and Washington Street. The best management practices will include bio-retention systems, which utilize permeable soil mixtures and native plantings to filter and increase the quality of stormwater runoff.


The Illinois Green Infrastructure Grant (IGIG) Program will provide funding for approximately 75% of bio-retention system construction costs. A grant application for funding from DuPage County is also pending review.
