As Illinois communities are dealing with urban flooding from a wetter climate, the demand from residents to improve stormwater management is increasing. ERA’s presentation at the IAFSM conference on Thursday will focus on how communities can use customized GIS maps from readily available data. The maps are used to identify flood risks from hydraulic features, such as overland flow paths, local depressional storage areas and delineated watersheds, and subwatersheds. The easy-to-read maps can be used by community staff (engineers and non-engineers alike) during public outreach, permitting, planning, and design activities to address urban flooding issues for residents. The presentation will go through real life examples of how these GIS maps are put to work for local communities. Make sure to attend their session this Thursday, March 11th!
ERA teamed up with DuPage County Stormwater and the Village of Bensenville to present the award-winning Redmond Reservoir Expansion project at this year’s IAFSM conference. This is a success story of how creativity and teamwork between governmental agencies turned a regional stormwater management facility (Redmond Reservoir) into an ideal solution to localized urban flooding throughout the Village of Bensenville. Don’t miss the presentation next Wednesday, March 10th at the virtual IAFSM Conference!
