Retention Ponds are basins that catch runoff from higher elevations.
These ponds have water in them year round and are often located near
development areas. Public works tracks these ponds along with the
restrictors and outfalls contained in them.
The Village of Glenview’s Public Works currently only had the
location of these retention ponds on As-Builts. GIS was able to assist
in the project to show the locations of these retention ponds on one
map. This allows for an easier and faster way to find the retention
ponds. Public Works will also be utilizing these locations on a series
of map books to be used in the field.
