Have You Experienced Damage from Flooding?
Franklin Park has experienced several high intensity rain storms in recent days. If you sustained damage, at any time, from either overland flooding or basement backup, please notify the village by completing the Damage Information Form as soon as possible.
We need your assistance in collecting this data to determine if funding is available to help with clean-up and to help the village to seek resources to alleviate future flooding. Please help us to compile information about where flooding has occurred and the damage it has caused to better facilitate ways to relieve flooding.
Save your receipts for future claims and if possible, take photos of the flood damage. Commercial and industrial property owners may also complete this form if they experienced any flooding.

Permits Now Required by MWRD for Properties Located in a Floodplain
The Metropolitan Water Reclamation District (MWRD) has become the storm water management agency for all of Cook County. They recently passed an ordinance requiring that all properties in a floodplain or floodway have a permit from the MWRD in order to complete a development on the exterior of a home. This permit must also include an elevation survey and documents indicating compliance by a licensed engineer. The permit takes a minimum of 3 to 4 weeks to process and there is a fee required. The types of developments included are home additions, above ground pools, and garage expansions. Additionally, if you reside outside the floodplain, you may require a MWRD permit if your projected development is over 0.5 acres.
If you have questions, call MWRD at (312) 751-3255.
