— Suburban Yard Becomes ‘Lake Michigan’ After Recent Rain, Homeowner Says – Chris Coffey (DIERSEN: I should write a book about Wheaton’s approval of a grossly inadequate lot drainage plan for the four-home Cove Court cul-de-sac that I live in. Wheaton’s failure to require the developer to install six instead of only two storm sewer inlets and to properly connect four subterranean drainage lines to the city’s storm sewer system has a) forced me to pay for all nine of my home’s downspouts to be directly connected to the city’s storm sewer system and b) to spend hundreds of hours and thousands of dollars to properly connect two subterranean drainage lines, to install many storm sewer inlets, and to install lengthy French drains. As time goes on, a) more and more and more surface storm water and subterranean storm water flows onto and into my lot, b) more and more and more often my massive lot drainage improvements are overloaded, and c) more and more and more often that my sump pump runs. The cul-de-sac is a watershed area that was formerly used as a septic field for homes on the west side of Golf Lane and the north side of Frazier Court. Of course, the aforesaid dramatically depresses home values in the cul-de-sac.)
