Actions to takeFlood insurance is recommended for every home in the North Libertyville Estates subdivision. Homeowners may be eligible for a discount of up to 20% on their flood insurance premium through FEMA’s Community Rating System program. If the levee were to ever flood, water will reach homes quickly so it’s important to sit down with your family to create an evacuation plan. Visit ready.gov/plan for tips to start making your plan today.County ProjectThe levee is maintained by the Lake County Department of Public Works (LCPW) who continuously looks for ways to keep residents safe. Lake County began a study to analyze drainage improvements next to the levee and to look at further floodproofing the levee support system in preparation for a significant river flood event due to the increased rainfall Lake County is receiving. The study is still in its early phases, and LCPW will provide an update once the study is complete.
