Following the historic flooding event in northern Illinois in April of 2013, the Village of Westmont approved the creation of the Community Stormwater Management Committee. The mission of the committee was to review community stormwater management issues in the Village of Westmont and make recommendations for improvement to the Village Board.
On Oct. 24, 2013, the Stormwater Committee made a presentation to the Village Board regarding research that had been conducted over the previous several months. The presentation covered a wide range of topics including prioritization of flooded areas, "green" stormwater management strategies, and a recommendation to create a Stormwater Utility which will provide an ongoing source of revenue for stormwater management projects and maintenance.
In early 2014, the Village Board dissolved the Community Stormwater Management Committee so that the people involved with the committee were no longer bound to the Village and could participate in a Stormwater Stakeholder’s Group.
Below are links to various aspects of the Community Stormwater Management Committee’s presentation from Oct. 24, 2013:
