MWRD Reservoir Expansion to Alleviate Area Flooding

Shovels hit the ground in Burbank on April 2 for the official groundbreaking of the Melvina Ditch Reservoir expansion project. The expansion is designed to provide much needed flood relief to both Burbank and Oak Lawn.“Today’s groundbreaking represents the culmination of an engaging public process that relied on the input of Burbank and Oak Lawn residents to work toward a solution to severe flooding in their communities,” said MWRD President Mariyana Spyropoulos.

Construction is now officially underway on the reservoir, 6500 W. 87th St., Burbank, and is anticipated to be complete by 2020. The MWRD will remove more than 80,000 tons of dirt to increase its holding capacity by nearly 64 million gallons. The $20-million project, funded primarily by the MWRD, also recieved a grant from the State of Illinois through it's Build Illinois Bond Fund.

Area officials, including Stickney Township Supervisor Louis S. Viverito, were on hand and applauded the project. "I'm extremely excited and proud to think the MWRD is going to help Stickney Township, the City of Burbank and the Village of Oak Lawn solve their flooding problems," said Viverito. "You can't believe the people who would come to me crying and upset that they were flooded. This is going to be great for the residents and businesses of Burbank and for Oak Lawn."

“The village of Burbank couldn’t be more pleased that we are progressing on this project,” said Burbank Mayor Dan Foy. “There are 430 residential properties that will have a reduced risk of flooding during storms. This is a great day.”

Additional work on the reservoir will include the installation of a stormwater chamber and culverts at the outlet of the pumping station. Contruction will extend to 87th Street to install the culverts and replace any disturbed utilities. Storm pumps will also be removed and serviced and impellers will be lengthened. Downstream communities, such as Bridgview, Chicago Ridge and Worth will also benefit indirectly from the reservior.
