The Village of Lincolnshire is evaluating stormwater drainage issues throughout the entire community. The Village has retained the services of Christopher B. Burke Engineering to assist in evaluating existing conditions and develop alternatives to address identified deficiencies. Input received from the Open House will be compiled to assist the Village plan and prioritize future drainage improvement projects.

The Village partnered with the Lake County Stormwater Management Commission, the United States Geological Survey, and the National Weather Service to provide an interactive map that lets you see the extent of flooding based upon forecasted river stages.

The Village-Wide Drainage Study Survey has now closed. The survey was open for a total of 42 days, during which time over 130 respondents shared valuable information on their specific drainage concerns. The survey information has been provided to Christopher Burke Engineering, Ltd to assist the village with the next step of developing a Stormwater Master Plan. The Stormwater Master Plan will identify system deficiencies and include designs to reduce the risk of future floods, and proactively plan for current and future extreme rainfall events. The Stormwater Master Plan is expected to be complete by the Spring of 2020. Additional information will be added to this web-page through the duration of the project.
