After 30 years of servicing customers in the Chicago area, Parks’ Plumbing and Sewer is now happy to provide the best flood control protection to Westchester residents and their homes. We decided to expand our flood control service area to include Westchester following the big flood of 2010 to help the residents alleviate sewer back-up in case a storm like that happens again.
About Westchester, Illinois
Westchester is a small town located on the western tip of Cook County with a population of about 16,000. It was the epicenter of the big rainstorm that hit the Chicago area on the morning of July 24, 2010. Many streets were impassable, underpasses were flooded, and – unfortunately – a lot of basements were flooded. The approximate precipitation totals in the area that got the brunt of the storm were upwards of seven inches of rain.The Village of Westchester is served by separate storm and sanitary sewers. During some intense rains, the capacity of the sanitary sewer system is not adequate to carry the peak flow, resulting in pressurized sewers. When pressurized, the sewage can backflow through house sewers into basements if there is no backflow prevention.
