NORTH AURORA – North Aurora village trustees have authorized emergency repairs to the stormwater pond in the Oak Hill subdivision.
Village trustees last week approved a contract with Sycamore-based Encap for shoreline repairs not to exceed $29,958. Oak Hill is a single-family home neighborhood built in the late 1990s.
"Recent flood events have dramatically eroded this shoreline, dictating that emergency repair be implemented," village engineer James Bibby said in a memo to village officials.
The village will use $30,000 in special service area funds to pay for the work, which is expected to be completed in the fall. Village said the work has been classified as a professional service because of the experienced/certified wetland botanists and hydrologists that are required to oversee the sensitive installation on a pond with a significant tributary area.
Heavy rains in April caused flooding throughout the area.
