On Friday June 26, 2020, the weather forecast system calls for up to 1.5” of rain into late this evening. Skokie’s flood control system is prepared and Skokie Public Works crews are available should the event exceeds design capacity.

Homeowners can prepare by making sure window well covers are in place, gutters and downspouts are clear of debris, sump pumps are plugged in and flood control systems or working correctly. For after-hours emergencies, please call the Police Department at 847-982-5900 and they will contact Public Works staff.

Please reduce water usage during rainstorms to help increase the storage capacity in sewer collection systems. You can reduce water usage by delaying washing laundry, running your dishwasher, and limiting running the shower.
