Provide improved stormwater quality by providing improved streambank stabilization and reduce flooding with the creation of new flood plain storage areas. 


Hanover Park:  The project restores and stabilizes the eroded streambanks.  Work includes streambank excavation and re-shaping, removal of a box culvert, and re-meandering of the stream to create new channel and forebay areas.  Rock toe, in-stream rock substrate areas, stream barbs, and pre-cast modular retaining walls are used as stabilization measures.  New native plantings will be installed to improve water quality. 

Schaumburg:  The project includes realignment of portions of the channel to create a sinuous reach, regrading of banks, installation of vegetated stone toe, installation of two riffle structures, removal of existing sheetpile wall, installation of a new watermain under the stream, lining of a sanitary sewer under the stream, grading to create floodplain storage, and plantings/restoration. 


The contract has been awarded to EarthWerks Land Improvement & Development Corporation.  Construction on the Schaumburg portion of the project is expected to begin in the coming weeks.  Work on the Hanover Park portion is scheduled to start next year.
