An intense 38-hour rainfall caused extensive, city-wide flood damage in the City of Park Ridge. More than 340 residents reported various types of flooding that included such things as sanitary surcharge, street and yard flooding, and overland flow into homes. Residents were asked to submit Flood Assessment Forms which were used along with historical data to identify six priority study areas. The primary goals of the study were to determine the extent and cause of the flooding and to provide solutions to reduce the risk of future flooding.
