Strategic Drainage Ditch Maintenance 2010

Currently the Village of Glenview does not maintain existing drainage
ditches or culverts. This long-standing policy may merit review by the
Board of Trustees as many neighborhoods depend heavily on ditch flow as
their primary means of storm water drainage. Development of a
Village-wide inventory of the existing right-of-way, and easemented
drainage ditches is proposed for completion within 2010. Currently the
Village is using Geographic Information System (GIS) to create this
inventory.

By using GIS it provides the Village with a better understanding of
where and how many linear feet of public and private ditches are in the
Village. It also allows for Capital projects to present a more complete
report and presentation, which could ultimately be the deciding factor
on whether or not the Board of Trustees approves a storm water
maintenance fund.
