The Madison Avenue Flood Prone Area is an upland depression centered between Ellis Avenue and Gary Avenue and has a total of approximately 41 acres directly tributary.
The tributary area bounded by Harrison Avenue to the North, Franklin Street to the south, Carlton Avenue to the west and West Street to the east.
In 2018, the City of Wheaton contracted Webster, McGrath, & Ahlberg to complete the 2017 Flood Study Project V which included the Jefferson Avenue Flood Prone Area and the Madison Avenue Flood Prone Area. The purpose of this study was to determine the extent and frequency of overland flooding into the area’s homes. The area was surveyed and modeled, and an alternative analysis was completed. The final report and an inundation map can be found below.
