The Village of Lombard’s Public Works Department, in conjunction with Bedrock Earthscapes, LLC of Wheaton, will be performing controlled burns this fall (late November) to help promote healthy native vegetation at the following locations:

  • Echo Pond, at the southeast corner of Wilson Avenue and Main Street across the street from Glenbard—East High School
  • Grace/Central Basin, northeast corner of the intersection of Grace Street and Central Avenue
  • Parker/Kaplan Basin, west of Kramer Avenue, north of Kaplan Court, and east of Parker Drive
  • Surges Center (Public Works Maintenance Facility), in the Garfield Street cul-de-sac, north of North Avenue (Route 64).

Controlled burns rely heavily on weather and site conditions. A one-day notice will be given before the burn, which will be shared on the Village's website, Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter accounts. Additionally, residents can sign up to receive email notices and updates at

An open burn permit has been obtained from the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency. The burn plan has also been reviewed and approved by the Lombard Fire Department. Bedrock Earthscapes Inc. and Village employees are trained in controlled burn tactics and are equipped with fire-fighting tools and safety equipment.
