For Immediate Release

June 24, 2021

Forecasted Rain Event:


The Village’s weather forecast system is calling for up to 1 inch of rain on Friday and possibly up to 2 inches of rain over the upcoming weekend. Skokie’s flood control system is prepared and crews are available should the event exceeds design capacity. 


Homeowners can prepare by making sure window well covers are in place, gutters and downspouts are clear of debris, sump pumps are plugged in and flood control systems are working correctly. If you have an after-hours emergency, you can call the Police Department at 847-982-5900 and they will contact Public Works.


Please reduce water usage during rainstorms to help increase the storage capacity in sewer collection systems. You can reduce water usage by delaying washing laundry, running your dishwasher, and limiting running the shower.
