Stormwater Management Program

The Village of Huntley is committed to managing and mitigating the effects of urbanization on stormwater drainage throughout the Village by means of planning, applying appropriate engineering practices and enforcing proper maintenance of stormwater management facilities.  The Village has adopted the Kane County Stormwater Ordinance to promote effective, equitable, acceptable and legal stormwater management measures by establishing reasonable rules and regulations for development.  Furthermore, to provide developers and applicants assistance in complying with the Stormwater Ordinance and the technical requirements of a stormwater permit application, Kane County has developed the Kane County Technical Guidance Manual as a technical guide.

Stormwater Management & Purpose of Ponds
For the past several years, more and more emphasis has been placed on “multi-objective” use of stormwater management facilities. Water quality, variety of vegetation, erosion control and even wildlife habitat, along with recreation, have all become objectives of stormwater management facilities. Read more

Floodplains and Flooding

The National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) provides protection for property owners against flood loss while working with communities to develop Floodplain Management programs. Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRMs) identify areas of high risk. The Engineering Division maintains current FEMA maps and assists residents, realtors and engineers in determining whether a floodplain encroaches on a property.  FEMA maps  are also available on-line.

The Engineering Division also provides advice and assistance to residents experiencing flooding and drainage problems. Please call the Public Works and Engineering Department at 847-515-5222 for assistance and appointment
