Project Update 
Christopher B. Burke Engineering, LTD. (CBBEL) has prepared a proposed conditions model and various stormwater improvements to reduce the risk of future flooding at the 163rd Street location.  The collection of the field survey data was completed late last year and the existing conditions hydrologic and hydraulic models have been developed.  CBBEL obtained historical rainfall data from the village and calibrated the models for existing conditions at the site.  

The proposed improvements have been reviewed by the village and cost estimates for construction have been prepared.  The next step will be for the village and the homeowner's association to meet regarding the costs for the proposed improvements.  The meeting is anticipated to occur in the next few weeks.
