Why is this project necessary? The station has exceeded its service life. Updated facilities are necessary to have a reliable sewer collection system.

How does this benefit the Village? The benefits of the project will be an improved and more reliable sewer collection system. Specifically, the projects will provide an updated control system, new pumps, piping and an ability to perform maintenance while minimizing disruptions to traffic or sewer service. 

Will this impact traffic and parking?  There may be short-term lane reductions on Westmore-Meyers as work progress (service connection to the sanitary sewer system) and construction equipment and materials enter and leave the site. However, the primary impact will be limited to the lift station site and the west parkway (Arthur Avenue) across from the station.
