The Metropolitan Water Reclamation District of Greater Chicago is planning
to excavate over 5,000 cubic yards of sediment/soil material from the
Melvina Ditch Reservoir located on 87th Street in Burbank. This project will
provide millions of gallons of additional storm water storage and aid in
reducing local flooding. The project will involve re-grading the bottom of
the reservoir and offsite disposal of the spoil material. After the material
is removed, the disturbed area will be stabilized with a grass blanket.
During removal of the spoil material, trucks will be entering and exiting
the reservoir from 87th Street for hauling, with an estimated 500 truckloads
needed to remove the excavated soil. A traffic control plan is being
prepared with assistance from the Cook County Department of Transportation
and Highways and extended work-hours (dawn to dusk, including weekends) will
be employed to remove this material as quickly as possible. The District is
currently performing testing on the material to be removed and will proceed
with the work once proper disposal procedures are defined.
In addition, the District is working to develop plans for expanding the
Melvina Ditch Reservoir. System-wide improvements, throughout the Melvina
Ditch watershed, will also be evaluated for long-term flooding solutions in
Burbank and neighboring communities.

ASSISTANCE UPDATE * *
On October 6, 2014, the City of Burbank was notified by the Cook County
Department of Homeland Security and Emergency Management (DHSEM) of the
following with regard to the flood on August 22, 2014: We did not sustain
enough damages throughout the entire County to declare a disaster and
request financial assistance through either the Public Assistance (PA) or
Individual Assistance (IA) program.
The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) uses a formula to calculate
losses and it determined that aggregate losses did not meet the threshold
requirements. Burbank, however, will continue to seek other avenues to try
and bring some degree of financial relief to flood victims.
This is a formal public announcement that on August 25, 2014, installation
of the red light safety enforcement camera systems began.
Construction on this
project was completed September 3, 2014. Please be advised that our Go
