Stormwater Master Plan

The Glenview Stormwater Master Plan will be used to assess current stormwater conditions in the Village and identify and prioritize future projects to address flooding issues. 

The Master Plan will use a multi-faceted approach that includes the following: 

  • Input from residents currently experiencing flooding issues
  • A review of current and potential ordnances and policies
  • Hydrologic and hydraulic modeling that incorporates constructed projects and changes in rainfall patterns
  • Identification and prioritization of potential flood reduction projects

Public Input

Public input is an essential part of the Master Planning process. Areas of flooding identified by residents will be incorporated into the assessment of model results. 

Stormwater Master Plan History

Widespread flooding across the Village during the storm events of 2008 led to the Village’s first comprehensive stormwater study, the Flood Risk Reduction Program (FRRP) that was published in 2010. 

The FRRP created a tiered approach for identifying flood prone areas and prioritizing projects to address major flooding issues. The Village has incorporated stormwater improvements into Capital Improvement Program (CIP) infrastructure projects, obtained grants from state and federal agencies, and used Village funds to implement projects identified by the FRRP.
