The riverwalk along the west branch of the DuPage river through Naperville, Illinois. We respond to storm damage emergencies 24-hours a day in DuPage and Will Counties.

Two years ago, the west branch of the DuPage River was under a flash flood watch due to heavy rain that caused the river to reach flood stage at 11.6 feet. The Naperville Fire Department urged residents to stay away from the river until the waters receded to normal levels. Our local team in Plainfield and Naperville South has been restoring storm damage in Naperville for many years. Here is some information from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration about flood watches and warnings:
