Additional Resources - Who to Contact

Many drainage issues are caused by problems found on an individual property. In instances where drainage problems are identified as a localized problem for a particular property and not an area-wide issue, the City is not responsible for correcting the problem.

In worst-case scenarios, stormwater flooding can lead to damage of your yard or property. In some cases, water can enter the lower level or basement such that it causes damage to personal property inside a home or other structure. When water reaches that critical level, it may warrant spending time and money to correct the problem.

Hiring the Right Company

There are several local companies that provide services related to drainage, seepage and flooding problems for localized problems. When dealing with flooding and draining issues, you may find it useful to follow the following guidelines when searching for the right company to meet your needs.

  1. The City of Naperville is not in a position to promote, recommend or qualify one company over another. It is the homeowner’s responsibility to determine the qualifications of individual companies.
  2. It is recommended that homeowners call several companies before hiring an individual or company to provide services. (Additional companies can be found in the telephone yellow pages, on the internet or by asking friends and neighbors for references).
  3. It is recommended that you compare services, past work experiences and price estimates before hiring an individual or company to provide any service.
  4. Be sure to check on local codes, permit requirements and whether or not contractors are properly licensed and insured.

When to Contact the City

Certain situations, such as water flowing into basement windows or doors during a flooding event may be considered a source of local flooding and may warrant review by the City. Please use the following guidelines when contacting the city for help.
