Many homeowners are familiar with foundation cracks that allow a trickle of water into their basement on rainy days. Flossmoor officials are facing a similar problem at the village’s underground reservoir, except that thousands of gallons of water are escaping through cracks every day.
John Brunke, the village’s public works director, says repairs to the reservoir will be completed this spring. Flossmoor is about to seek bids on the repairs and the project should begin in April, he said. The repairs are expected to cost about $200,000.
