Burke, LLC was retained by the City of Elmhurst to design and construct the Saylor/Swain/Vallette Stormwater Improvements. In an effort to significantly reduce localized flooding, the City purchased and demolished four adjacent residential properties. A 6.15 ac-ft stormtrap underground vault was installed with a pump station to evacuate the vault into the City’s dedicated storm sewer. Additionally, a box culvert was installed in the nearby roadway, adding 1.12 ac-ft of storage for a total of 7.27 ac-ft for the project. Incidental storm sewer, inlets and collateral work was performed. Utilizing the design build delivery method allowed the project to be constructed in one construction season.
