The 600-acre-foot Addison Creek Reservoir will hold close to 200 million gallons of storage capacity and connect with the Addison Creek Channel. The estimated $63 million reservoir along with the Addison Creek Channel Improvement project will help alleviate public health and safety concerns by reducing overbank flooding to approximately 2,200 structures along the creek from Northlake to Broadview, including 1,700 structures that will be removed from the floodplain. The reservoir will provide approx. $116 million in flood benefits and create approximately 633 construction-related jobs.
Earlier this year, contaminated soils were discovered on the Addison Creek Reservoir property. This soil will be removed and disposed of in an environmentally-friendly manner by August, 2020, and excavation of the reservoir will resume soon thereafter.
