***During the conference, don’t miss the opportunity to watch the presentation about Wescott Park Storm Water Storage Facility. A project that creatively combines green infrastructure with large-scale flood mitigation by utilizing a storm water storage facility, and a rainwater harvesting system that uses the stored water to irrigate the park’s ballfields.

The Wescott Park Storm Water Storage Facility was recognized by Storm Water Solutions Magazine as a Top Project Winner for 2017. The project also won the Illinois Section ASCE Outstanding Civil Engineering Achievement under $10 Million, ACEC-Illinois Engineering Excellence, and Friends of the Chicago River – Green Ribbon.
