On the evening of May 30, 2018 the Village received approximately 3” on the north side of Lombard and 1 ½” to 2” in the central/south side of Lombard.  The rainfall came over a short period of time; approximately 2 hours.  This rain event equates to a 10 year storm event.  As a result of the storm, the Village had numerous road closures and reoaports of flooded structures.  In addition to the calls related to the flooding, the Village experienced a watermain break at Park ad Green Valley Drive.  The Public Works Department had personnel assigned to address the flooding and drainage issues.

As part of the Village’s response to flooding, the Village Board has adopted a Storm Debris Management Policy that provides guidance and direction on the manner in which the Village assists property owners impacted by flooding with the removal of debris.  Per the Policy, residents will have two weeks from the date of the event (May 30, 2018) in which to pick up stickers from the Public Works Department to be used for the disposal of storm related debris. The Village will provide up to ten (10) STORM CLEANUP stickers to each affected property. Additional stickers may be requested through the Director of Public Works.  Stickers will be available in the Public Works Department during regular business hours (8:00 am to 4:30 pm) or at the Lombard Police Department between 4:30 pm to 11:00.  Property owners who would like additional stickers can contact the Director of Public Works at 630-620-5740.

The Village of Lombard’s mosquito abatement program with Clarke Mosquito Control includes the standard treatment all of standing waters with larvicide, but the Village also goes beyond many other municipalities by also treating backyard (i.e. private) catch basins.  It is important to note that there are many species of mosquitoes that impact the Lombard area.  With the potential for additional locations of standing water due to the storm, property owners are encouraged to call the Clarke "Hotline" at 1-800-942-2555 to report standing/stagnant water.
