What is the City Doing?

The City has worked very hard in recent years to help protect its ‘ citizens and their property by developing and implementing sustainable floodplain management strategies. They’ve worked to understand where the flooding problems are, what the effects of them are, and have been working diligently to find solutions for them.

Top Priorities:

  • Flood Wall around waste water treatment plant-Implemented 2016
    Mitigate houses in the “Flats”-  # of homes have been mitigated over the past # years.  This area is now a park (Fox River Park). When floods now occur, the park provides for natural storage and conveyance for flood waters.
  • Re align/elevate Green Street-
  • Elevate Berm around Ottawa High School and area protecting portions of the East Side
