Spring Brook Tributary to Salt Creek Improvement Projects

Spring Brook Culvert Replacement Project

In 2006, DuPage County Stormwater Management Planning Committee and DuPage County Board approved and adopted the Spring Brook Tributary to Salt Creek Watershed Plan. The recommended alternative in the plan to address the issue of flooding along Spring Brook Creek included four structural components which included: modification of the labyrinth weir at the Meacham Grove Reservoir, replacement of the Foster Avenue Culverts, replacement of the culverts at the private drive upstream of Foster Avenue, and construction of a drainage swale to facilitate drainage of the Foster. Modification of the labyrinth weir was completed in August 2011, replacement of the Foster Avenue Culvert was completed in December 2012, and replacement of the culvert directly upstream of the Foster Avenue culvert was completed in 2016. At this time, there are no plans to construct the drainage swale, .
