The Mount Prospect Village Board contracted the engineering firm Burns & McDonnell to examine the cause of flooding that occurred throughout the Village on July 23, 2011. According to the Village website: “The scope of Burns & McDonnell’s work included examining the condition and capacity of the Village’s existing sewer system as well as analyzing flood surveys and home inspections conducted by the Public Works Department.”
