Tips Metropolitan Water Reclamation District of Greater Chicago

Reduce water usage while it’s raining by taking shorter showers and delaying use of a dishwasher or washing machine.
Disconnect downspouts and install a rain barrel to capture rainwater.
Do not flush personal care products, which can clog pipes and cause blockages in the water system.
“Our local sewers need that space during a heavy downpour,” Steele said. “These simple tips will make space available in your local sewers so water can travel to our system instead of your basement.”

MWRD also offers the following tips for minimizing flooding during heavy rainfall:

Ensure that storm drains are clear.
Keep areas around streams free of floatable debris.
Check your sump pump to make sure it is working properly.
Make sure your gutters are clear.
Chicago-area residents who observe flooding are directed to report it to their municipality. In Chicago, residents should call 311.

Residents can also sign up to receive alerts on Overflow Action Days, a program started by Friends of the Chicago River that provides water conservation reminders before and after rain events.

    DIY Olympics in Chicago: Make your own games with offerings around the city
    The journey to Pyeongchang is a long one, and I'm not talking about the figurative "journey to the Olympics" that broadcasters tout as a euphemism for the long, rigorous training regimens that earn athletes a trip to the Games. I'm talking about the literal journey to Pyeongchang, South Korea.
