Our Public Works crews maintain the stream channels, ditches, sewers and inlets.
Our Planning and Development Department ensures that flood and sewer backup protection measures are incorporated in new construction, improvements and repairs.
We are preserving most of the floodplain as parks and open space.
This website is part of an overall public information program strategy to help property owners learn about the hazard and what they can do about it. Additional information is available in the South Holland Public Library and at the Planning and Development Department at 16240 Wausau Avenue.
Our flood protection activities have been recognized by FEMA's Community Rating System. We are one of the few communities in the area that participate in this program, which brings reduction in flood insurance premiums of up to 25%.
