Drainage and Flood Assistance

Drainage and flood concerns may be significant for any landowner.  The types and textures of soils have a major influence on both occurrences.  Also, another important factor is the type and adequacy of the outlet for runoff draining from upstream areas.

The Will-South Cook Soil & Water Conservation District has a Professional Engineer on staff who is available to assist anyone who has drainage or flooding concerns.

For more information contact Neil Pellmann at (815)462-3106 ext 3.
