Fewer flooded basements and less standing water are in the forecast for Calumet City‘s northwest side thanks to infrastructure upgrades unveiled Nov. 2.

A ribbon-cutting ceremony attended by Mayor Michelle Markiewicz Qualkinbush, U.S. Rep. Robin Kelly (D-Ill.) and officials from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers was held to mark more than $1 million in upgrades at the Yates Pond pumping station.

City Administrator Bill Murray said the project has been in the works for three years.

Involved in the project along with the city and the Army Corps were the University of Illinois and Illinois State Geological Survey, which undertook soil samples to determine how best to improve drainage in the area south of the Little Calumet River…Please click here to read Mike Clark’s story in the Kokomo Perspective, or see a related news release.
