Chicago North Park Plumbing, Sewer, Flood Control Systems
Enter Your Information below or call
Flooding is a big issue in Chicago’s North Park neighborhood. The latest was in 2013 after major storms hit the area. Like most Chicago, there are no reservoirs, and with the density of buildings, streets, and parking lots, there is very little green space to absorb or slow down the onslaught of water in a heavy rain. The proximity to the Chicago River North Branch and the North Shore Channel also affects North Park. Because the city of Chicago has a combined storm and sanitary system, it means that every time there’s a serious rainstorm, sewers can backup, and people get water and worse in their basements. Parks’ Plumbing & Sewer, Inc. has been providing flood control systems, including sewer backflow valves and overhead sewers to Chicago’s North Park since 1981. Call today and protect your valuables and home.
