Please help our crews by keeping your drains and culverts clear as the water recedes. We ask that you do your part and if possible help your neighbors as well.
Additional flooding information to consider....
The Lake County Health Department/Community Health Center is advising residents to take preventive steps if they have been exposed to flood waters. The need for the vaccination should be evaluated by a healthcare provider. The Health Department is also recommending that those who need a tetanus shot should get a Tdap vaccination, which includes additional protection. Shots are available through healthcare providers and at the Health Department's Immunizations Clinic at 2303 Dodge Avenue in Waukegan. For more information call: 847-377-8470.
Property owners may conduct emergency clean-up activities without obtaining a permit, which includes removing water damaged property (i.e. carpeting, cabinets, etc). However, permits for repairs including replacing dry wall, or replacing carpeting, may be required by the Village. Call the Building Department to get a permit.
