Klein Creek/Armstrong Park Storage Reservoir & Pump Station

DuPage County Stormwater Management is working on a flood control project for Armstrong Park and restoration activities for Klein Creek as identified in the Klein Creek Watershed Addendum No.2 for Inclusion in the West Branch DuPage River Interim Watershed Plan. The Carol Stream project will consist of a two reservoir system operating when Klein Creek experiences increased water elevations in order to bypass the majority of the Armstrong Park neighborhood. Reservoir One will take in water directly from Klein Creek and once it reaches a specific elevation, water will be pumped into Reservoir Two—a much larger storage reservoir. The design for this project is complete and pre-project construction has occurred on site in the demolition of the Aldrin Center. When all permitting is finalized, the project will go out for bid—likely late fall.
