Maine Township Partners with MWRD and Feds for Future Flood Mitigation

Maine Township Highway Commissioner, Ed Beauvais is leading engagement for the Township.

Maine Township Highway Commissioner, Ed Beauvais and Supervisor Karen Dimond recently joined MWRD Commissioner Marcelino Garcia, Congressman Mike Quigley and Park Ridge Mayor Marty Maloney at a flood mitigation and infrastructure improvement site in unincorporated Park Ridge.

The site is one of several planned public infrastructure improvement sites within unincorporated Maine Township.

“Flood relief improvements like this one are what local area residents in Maine Township have prioritized as most important,” Commissioner Beauvais stated. “The planning and end results of this project will show the positive impacts that can happen when local, state and federal resources all come together to effectively solve problems,” Beauvais elaborated.

“When these projects are complete, unincorporated Maine Township residents will see relief around Prairie and Farmer's Creek,” said Commissioner Beauvais. “The Maine Township Highway Department also continues to advance projects that will improve our ability to "weather" the major rain events that we have all too often in our area,” Beauvais further stated.

Supervisor Dimond also touched on the value-add of tackling these projects to protect the property of current and future township residents stating, “we are happy to have this flood relief project in Maine Township as it will help protect residents and their property in the future.”
