Storm Water Management - Burr Oak

The Burr Oak Area Storm Sewer Improvement Project is complete. The project involved increasing storm sewer capacity and installing an underground stormwater detention vault. The completed work, while out of sight, brings flood mitigation relief to homes and businesses in downtown Lake Forest. The new StormTrap provides increased capacity for stormwater detention, improved stormwater quality and flow control. It will also have a significant impact on several roadways, including Western Avenue. The Lake County Stormwater Management Commission and The City of Lake Forest came together to celebrate the completed work with a ribbon cutting ceremony. Grant funding from the Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity (DCEO) and the City of Lake Forest was utilized to construct storm sewer system upgrades and underground storage facilities to help protect residents and businesses in the area from flood risk.
