Stormwater Utility

In 2005, the Village conducted a feasibility study for establishing a stormwater utility. In 2006, the Village created a stormwater utility, charged with managing stormwater within the Village via a special charge on water bills based on impervious surfaces. The Village purchased a street sweeper from this fund, among other efforts. The Village Stormwater Management Ordinance includes post-construction runoff management requirements for new development in the Village.

In 2012, the Village completed a comprehensive Stormwater Master Plan for the Village. That plan identified issues and potential solutions for stormwater management and flooding in the Village.
