Peoria, Illinois

The Greater Peoria Sanitary District (GPSD) is interested in determining and implementing flood risk management measures that will help mitigate future flood damages. Recent flood events on the Illinois River have been more severe and more frequent than those in the historic record. This increased magnitude and regularity of flooding has the GPSD interested in investigating actions that might provide greater flood protection, including greater resiliency. 

This study will investigate both structural and non-structural measures that may be taken to provide greater flood protection, including greater resiliency.

A Federal Interest Determination was completed and approved September 2016. A Feasibility Cost Sharing Agreement was signed April 2017 which allowed the project to advance to the feasibility study.

The project team is currently conducting the feasibility study and preparing the report. The Sponsor is actively working with IL EPA to determine actions necessary to address concerns with contaminated soils from former landuse. GPSD executive board members decided not to enter IL EPA’s site Remediation Program. In Dec. 2018 the Sponsor requested termination of the study.
