For the second time contact has been made regarding the City of Chicago Department of Water Management “Rain Blocker Program”. As I have said before years and years ago, the program which was piloted in Edgebrook has opened a major liability for the City of Chicago. From day one, I said the reduction of an entrance to a engineered drainage system is not code. The greatest problem areas include schools, and congested areas which garbage accumulates. Edgebrook is normally well maintained, (exceptions noted here before), so maybe the designed was flawed from the outset. Also the city failed to report honestly, city employees bust the device out when flooding occurs. Please note the contents of this “Chicago Orange Peel”, If you have had flooding contact Quinlan & Carrol ltd. 30 North LaSalle 29th Floor Chicago, Illinois 60602 Phone 1-312-263-0900. The lawyers on this case are James Niewiara and William R. Quinlan. The current lawsuit is Costello v. City of Chicago. Photo by Patrick McDonough.
