ASCE 2014 Outstanding Achievement Award; ACEC 2015 Special Achievement Award and APWA 2015 Project of the Year.  A Watershed Plan was developed and approved in February 2010 that identified conveyance improvements and flood storage that would provide a 100-year level of protection to 11 homes, one state highway (IL 59), a County roadway (Stearns Road) and multiple roadways within the Bartlett Estates Subdivision. The project included 4,000 LF of 15” diameter storm sewer in the Wayne Grove Forest Preserve, 2,000 LF of 60” storm sewer under Stearns Road (600’ to be tunneled under the intersection of IL 59 and Stearns Road) and a 58 acre-ft flood storage basin and dam on the Pratt’s Wayne Woods Forest Preserve. The project was successfully constructed in 2013.
