The City of Lockport's ordinance states that the drainage of roofs, paved yards, yards and courts, and other open areas on the premises, and sump pumps, shall not discharge in a manner that creates a nuisance to adjoining properties. The city advises property owners to redirect their sump pump discharge to an area that will not cause a nuisance to neighbors. For questions or to file a complaint, please contact Code Enforcement at (815) 838-2132.
FEMA determines if a property is in a floodplain. FEMA regularly publishes maps that show the locations of floodplains. For more information, visit FEMA's website.
Once your landscaping has been completed, please contact your Builder. Once approved by your Builder, the City will be notified to complete our inspection. Once the inspection has been performed and approved (usually 5-7 workings days after request), the bond will be refunded. Refund time is typically 4 - 6 weeks from date of final approval. If your landscaping has been rejected, you will be notified by mail of the outstanding issues. Once those items are corrected, please call for a reinspection of the property.
