Stormwater Management Plan REPORT

Posted to Deerfield Village Wide Drainage Study by John Guccione

In early 2020, the Village initiated a contract with an area consultant to developed a Village wide Stormwater Master Plan. This plan is designed to analyze and model the Village’s storm sewer system to determine deficient areas and provide improvement recommendations to those areas.  In all, there were 42 flood study areas that were identified where detailed drainage analyses was performed.

This plan has been submitted and reviewed by Village staff and is in its final draft form. As public input and resident interaction was a large part of the historical data collection, the Village is making the final draft available to residents for a 30 day public commenting period. During this time, residents are encouraged to review this report and provide any comments or questions to Village staff. The Village understands that this study and its associated computer model may not fit every situation perfectly, but the Village hopes that the information contained within the report is informative and helpful.

Public comments and questions can be emailed to the Engineering Department at Please include "STORMWATER MASTER PLAN" in the subject line when sending in comments. Comments will be accepted until July 26th.
