Flagg Creek Storm Sewer Outfalls


During the fall of 2020 Village staff completed a storm sewer investigation with V3 Companies for the Village’s storm outfalls located within Flagg Creek. The study photographed and reviewed each of the Village’s outfalls that discharge to Flagg Creek from 47th Street down through the Ridgewood subdivision. The Flagg Creek outfall investigation builds upon other storm water studies that the Village has completed in portions of Ridgewood and Springdale. Rehabilitation of various storm outfalls was an improvement identified in the 2016 Ridgewood Infrastructure Study.
