RainReady Midlothian Interim Report

Since September 2014, CNT and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) have been working closely with the Village of Midlothian and a variety of community and agency partners to assess the cause and characteristics of chronic urban flooding in Midlothian, a southwest suburb of Chicago. Data has been collected through a resident survey, expert analysis of existing storm sewer systems and watershed topography, a newly installed streamflow gage on Natalie Creek, as well as archived and recent precipitation data. This interim report summarizes and synthesizes these many sources of information collected to date, and begins to identify opportunities for intervention to support resilience in Midlothian.
