Carbon Cliff, Illinois

Carbon Cliff, Illinois, has a history of flooding from the Rock River and an unnamed tributary which runs through a portion of the City. The City would like assistance investigating alternatives, both structural and non-structural, to help reduce damages caused by flooding.

A letter of request has been received from the sponsor. The initial phase of work will be to determine a federal interest.
This is a potential new start. This project is awaiting funding.
