30 years ago, the rain that moved through the region on Friday and Saturday would’ve made many homeowners in eastern DuPage county nervous. The county was able to allay the Salt Creek watershed flooding concerns when it created a massive flood water storage facility in the former Elmhurst quarry. Days before the recent rain, DuPage Storm Water Management welcomed visitors for a behind the scenes look at what was once just a big hole in the ground. First Light host Brian O’Keefe was there for the tour
