Elmhurst quarry flood control
The Elmhurst Quarry Flood Control facility is an 8,300 acre-foot flood control facility, which began construction in 1993 and was fully operational in 1996. The facility has storage of up to 2.7 billion gallons of water, utilizing a predetermined operating plan that diverts floodwater via a tunnel underneath Illinois Route 83. The Elmhurst Quarry is the largest of four mechanically-operated flood control facilities in DuPage County. Quarry tours are co-sponsored by Dupage County Stormwater Management, Elmhurst Historical Museum and Elmhurst park District.
Elmhurst-Chicago Stone is dedicated to a policy of reclamation and rehabilitation wherever possible, in an effort to restoring the pleasing scenic character of our sites. One such site that was mined became Whalon Lake in Bolingbrook, IL. Whalon Lake is a 249-acre preserve, which is part of the DuPage River Preservation system and home to many outdoor activities, such as hiking, biking and fishing.
