Flooding is a big issue in Chicago’s Edison Park neighborhood. There are no reservoirs, and with the density of buildings, streets and parking lots, there is very little green space to absorb or slow down the onslaught of water in a heavy rain. Because the city of Chicago has a combined storm and sanitary system it means that every time there's a serious rainstorm, people get water and worse in their basements. Parks’ Plumbing & Sewer, Inc. has been providing flood control systems including sewer backflow valves and overhead sewers to Chicago’s Edison Park since 1981.

Edison Park is the farthest North and Northwestern neighborhood in Chicago. Edison Park's settlement history started in 1834, with the Ebinger family who were traveling northwest from Chicago on the Indian trail to Milwaukee. When their horse was bitten by a snake and died, the Ebingers decided to settle there, between Touhy and Devon, west of the North Branch of the Chicago River where they were joined by other members of the family.
Most of Edison Park’s growth came when the railroads laid track through the northwest side and again after the Chicago Fire of 1871. City dwellers wanting to escape the city were coming northwest. In 1889, Chicago absorbed many of the previously suburban towns along the train line, everything from the old city boundaries at North and Western avenues out through Jefferson Park. Edison Park is named for inventor Thomas Alva Edison, who gave his blessing to the name in 1890. In 1893, Edison Park voted to become a village, but it also made a decision to join the city in 1910 when it was annexed to Chicago.
Street names across the north side of the city were renamed in mile-wide swatches of alphabetic letters to eliminate duplicated names and help the post office sort mail. Edison Park inherited the "O" streets, many of them named for Indian tribes. East-west street names were borrowed from the extended lines along the grid from Rogers Park along the lake. Because most streets here were perpendicular to the railroad's angled corridor, the northeast and northwest side streets were all designated as "northward" streets and assigned "O" names.
