Floodplains in Riverwoods – Are You Affected?
By Village Engineer Pat Glenn
Spring (and winter) rains can sometimes bring flooding. While we do have some f1oodplains in Riverwoods, they are generally limited to two areas of the Village. FEMA Floodplain Maps and information are available at the Village Hall. Please come in during regular office hours and see if you are affected. We would like to remind you that f1ood insurance is mandatory when building in the f1oodplain and using a federally regulated/insured bank for a loan. Come in and our Building Department Staff will be happy to help you with this information. The Village Engineer can also help you get Elevation Certificates. There is information on file for some areas of the Village and for a nominal fee will be able to help you get one for your property if needed. The staff is available to see if they can help you come to some ways to address flooding problems. Call the Building Department if you have any questions at 847-945-3990.
