Although we are fairly new in Forest Park, we have already shown the local residents they can rely on us when it comes to flood control systems. We have installed our Double Guard Flood Control Systems at both single family homes as well as multi-unit buildings.
Forest Park, in the past also known as the town of Harlem, is a western suburb of Chicago. Located about 12 miles west of downtown Chicago, Forest Park is famous for its historic landmarks. Since the 1870’s cemeteries have been one of Forest Park’s main industries and are what the town is famous for. Some famous historians currently rest in the many cemeteries of Forest Park.
As far as plumbing is concerned, Forest Park made the news just after the July 24th storm that caused the partial closing of the Eisenhower Expressway, and the temporary suspension of the Blue Line service in the area.
The village has a combined sewer system, which means that storm water and sanitary waste get mixed in one main pipe in the street. If the sewer main gets overloaded it increases the chances of basement flooding.
