Responsibilities


The ten member advisory Stormwater Management Commission was originated in 1992 to work with residents, staff, consultants and the Board of Trustees to develop a Master Plan for stormwater management for the entire Village. Under the direction of the Commission, stormwater management construction projects and programs are developed, prioritized and ultimately implemented when funding is available and benefits justified. The Commission updates the Master Plan periodically to reflect completed projects, new projects, inflation, amendments, etc. and monitors state and federal regulations as they apply to the Village, including any revisions to the National Flood Insurance Program, in order to recommend the appropriate revisions to current standards or passage of new ordinances. The Commission also coordinates with local stormwater management groups, such as the Friends of the Chicago River, to develop resident education on programs stream bank maintenance, water quality and stormwater Best Management Practices (BMPs).
