Parkview Estates - Update 6/25/15
Project Update

Parkview Estates – Stage I

Construction of the storm sewer pipe and berms is completed on Butterfield and in the 86th Avenue right of way.  

Parkview Estates – Stage II
The second phase of the Parkview Stormwater Improvement Project will consist of the construction of a detention storage basin near Evergreen View Park and associated conveyance pipes from the Caro Vista Subdivision.  

Proposed Phase II

Project Description

The Parkview area has evolved in scope and size to incorporate several other areas of the Village into the study area.  The study area known as Parkview now encompasses portions of Caro Vista and Villa West among others.  Christopher B. Burke Engineering Ltd. (CBBEL) has developed detailed existing and proposed conditions models for the entire area and presented the Village with a number of alterative designs to reduce the risk of future flooding. 

The Village has selected a preferred set of alternatives that will be broken into two phases for design and construction.  The first phase will consist of the construction of an overflow pipe to convey offsite storm water flow through the subdivision and to modify the outlet control structure.  This stage was recently approved by the Village Board as a Design-Build project to be completed this year.  Design and engineering are currently underway with a permit submittal to the Metropolitan Water Reclamation District of Greater Chicago (MWRD) expected to occur in the next several weeks.  Since the existing detention basin was permitted by the MWRD, any modifications must be approved by them. 

The second phase will consist of the construction of a detention storage basin and associated conveyance pipes from the Caro Vista subdivision.

Project History
The project site is located north of 135th Street and east of 88th Avenue. Several residential structures in the area have been subjected to repeated flooding from undetained runoff flowing from the unincorporated Palos Township located immediately east of the subdivision.
