⛈After yesterday storm,

Just a reminder, please check your block's catch basins and sewer structures to ensure they're free of debris.

Restrictors installed by the city slow how quickly water enters the system (which helps protect your basement from flooding). It may take a couple of days for all the water to drain after heavy rain.

However, if the water isn't draining, and you've already cleared the sewer structure of debris, you can email us at [email protected], call us, or comment below.

Please report all fallen trees, tree limbs, and clogged sewers in our area.

12th Ward Success

As Alderman and a member of the community, I am so proud of the great strides of progress we’ve made. Our neighborhoods have improved to give our next generation of Chicagoans the opportunity to change the world. We have worked together to secure resources for our neighborhood schools, increased programming at our parks, and improved safety on our streets. Beyond the 12th ward, I have fought hard to bring millions in infrastructure repairs to our beloved city. We have welcomed new business such as LA Fitness, National Express, New Star Lighting and more. Brighton Park and Little Village has grown with new schools, parks and health centers. McKinley Park, has witnessed a revival from schools to parks to job opportunities. Together, we have grown and will continue to do so. I’ve kept my promises and will continue to work hard for our 12th ward.
