The Village of Bensenville has experienced frequent and severe flooding upstream and downstream of Redmond Reservoir. In 2015, the Village completed the Redmond Reservoir Hydraulic study that identified several improvements that will help alleviate some of the flooding concerns. Included in these recommendations is a stormsewer project referred to as “Area A-1 Improvements” that consists of storm sewer installation in various sizes from Lions Park down to Redmond reservoir. The Village applied for and was awarded Community Development Block Grant – Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR) funding of $2,000,000 through DuPage County to install the upstream portion of this storm sewer.
Phase 1 of the Addison Creek Stormsewer Project will install oversized diameter stormsewer pipes beginning on Wood Avenue just west of Lions Park. The project will continue east and south, crossing York Road, and terminating at Rose Street. Future stormsewer projects will continue from this location down to the Redmond Reservoir, with the goal to have a completed oversized sewer route competed by 2028, dependent on funding of future projects.
