USA: Council Discusses Valley View Pond Dredging

The issue of dredging Valley View Pond or turning it into a marsh will again be discussed by the Downers Grove Village Council, says

Valley View Pond project entails the removal of accumulated silt deposits from the bottom of Valley View Estates Pond/O’Brien Park in order to improve the quality of water within the pond. This Village-owned pond is a regional retention pond receiving flows from the area of the Village located roughly south of 68th Street between Main Street and Fairview Avenue.

This project was discussed yesterday at the 2012 Village Council meeting under the meeting agenda for “First Reading”.

Testing concluded that dredging the pond would be inappropriate, but the residents hope the village pays to dredge the pond and return it to the previous state.
