The Village of Skokie Runoff Control Program is a system designed to alleviate extensive basement flooding through an optimum combination of on-street storage, detention facilities, and relief sewers designed for a 10-year recurrence interval storm. The program consists of six components: flow regulators, street berms, storm collector sewers, subsurface stormwater detention tanks, surface detention basins and combined relief sewers. Tasks include coordinating the yearly construction schedule; obtaining permits from the Illinois Department of Transportation, Illinois Environmental Protection Agency, Cook County, and Metropolitan Water Reclamation District of Greater Chicago; assisting the Village in obtaining low-interest loans/grants from the state; and making presentations at public meetings and hearings.
