To reduce the risk of recurring surface flooding of homes, the project consisted of installing large, 54″ diameter storm sewer pipes and construction of a detention basin in Mount Prospect’s Burning Bush Trails Park. The basin will be utilized for storm water detention during heavy rain events and included the complete reconstruction of two baseball fields with short retaining walls for seating, new dugouts, staircases and handicap-accessible ramps. An underdrain system and irrigation system were also installed throughout the basin.
